Safety Camera Scotland units operate within Police Scoland, with the latest funding being announced by Transport Secretary Michael Matheson.

Their website continues: "Through targeted camera enforcement and improving driver behaviour the aim of Safety Cameras Scotland is to reduce the number of casualties on Scotland's roads.

"This means our cameras are sited in the areas most in need in terms of road casualty reduction, and deployed primarily where they will have the greatest casualty and collision reduction potential."

They add that they are "not driven by revenue generation", but instead "operate to make our roads safer.

"All monies generated by fines are paid to the Scottish Courts and Tribunals Service direct to the Scottish Government."
