(CS) Luxembourg's “Sécurité Routière” has recommended that some 225 speed cameras should be installed across Luxembourg, calling on the next government to help improve road safety.

The organisation criticised the outgoing government for its lack of action on the issue of road safety cameras, despite plans by the CSV-LSAP coalition to install fixed speed cameras on some roads.

Under these plans, 13 fixed speed cameras and 7 mobile units were foreseen – a laughable number, according to the “Sécurité Routière”, which says that at least 70 cameras are needed across the country, with the ideal number pitched at 225.

The group also called on the DP-LSAP-"déi Gréng" coalition to make road safety a national priority, paying more attention to preventing driving offences, punishing offenders, making infrastructures safer, encouraging “soft” mobility and better protecting vulnerable road users.
