People living on Calder Street in Glasgow are telling us they’re worried drivers will put their foot down as dozens of speed cameras across the city are switched off.

Safety Cameras Scotland says orange bags will be placed over 119 yellow and red boxes all over the country because they have helped to make the roads safer.

They include two on Great Western Road and one on Barrhead Road.

Our Senior Reporter Callum McQuade spoke to people on Aikenhead Road at the junction with Calder Street.

One man said: “These are deterrents and I think it is good for people to see them because it forced them to drive within the limits.

“I’ve seen cameras with bags on them and the way people drive is noticeably different.”

Another man added: “They will just do what they want.

“Loads of people in this area are constantly running red lights and there is a lot of erratic driving in the neighbourhood.

“We recently had a crash on the street just off the junction where they are talking about moving the camera.”
