Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Alan Shatter): Information on Alan Shatter Zoom on Alan Shatter Speed cameras save lives through the reduction of fatal and serious-injury speed-related collisions.

The outsourced safety camera network commenced operations in November 2010 and is currently providing 6,000 speed monitoring hours and 1,475 speed survey hours per month across the country. I am informed that up to the end of 2011 a total of €10.624m has been received on foot of fixed charge notices issued in relation to speeding detected by the service provider. The service provider is paid on the basis of enforcement and surveying hours conducted, and the rates are not linked in any way to the number of detections made.
