Mobile speed cameras which have caught hundreds of drivers across Tayside are in breach of guidelines over their use, it has been claimed.
According to a handbook distributed in May 2015, locations of where the vans will be deployed around Tayside “must be publicised before enforcement commences and should be updated on relevant web pages and through social media and press releases”.
However, the last press release detailing the planned sites of enforcement was last issued on July 24 2015 and relevant websites have not been updated since then.
In fact, the updates have not been released since the police transferred their former camera partnership into a new North Safety Camera Unit.
Mike Burns, who protested against average speed cameras being deployed on the A9, said the cameras are in breach of guidelines.
He said: “It casts a shadow over the operation in its entirety as being unprofessional and ignorant of their obligations.
“The unit is not meeting the conditions of funding, yet is still being funded. It has been operating in breach of funding for 10 months and is failing to provide any information to the public on activities and site selection statistics.”
Police Scotland said “system difficulties” had prevented websites being updates since last year.
However, the force said a new website would launch soon.
