    Spending £2.5m on average-speed cameras is unlikely to have any effect. Heavy goods vehicles are restricted to 40mph on single-carriageway sections of the A9. On the same sections, cars can do 60mph. The likely cause of these accidents is frustrated motorists caught behind slow-moving lorries travelling at their legal speed of 40mph. The frustration leads them to overtake where they shouldn't and accidents result.

    That lorries are the innocent victims in these accidents is not surprising. Where an accident has taken place, it is probable that both the car and lorry were within their legally-allowed speed limit. What effect will average-speed cameras have in preventing these accidents of frustration?
