Across Leeds, a number of mobile speed cameras have been put into place as the authorities attempt to reduce the number of accidents.

The cameras are provided by the West Yorkshire Police Camera Enforcement Unit on the behalf of the West Yorkshire Safety Camera Partnership. They are then put into place in two types of areas, core camera sites and community concern sites.

A core camera site is an area with a high number of casualties and speeding cars where where the authorities believe mobile enforcement is the best method to tackle the problem. Community concern sites do not meet these criteria, but locals have named them as areas with problems.

The cameras work by shining a laser at passing vehicles to determine their speeds. It works in a wide number of light and weather conditions.

Here are the camera sites across Leeds.
