“If I speak locally, in Sussex, we have a high number of cars, of sports cars, and bikers who come to visit the coast in the weekends, for example, and there’s little doubt that the communities through which they drive really do support average speed cameras and other safety cameras to assist them to reduce both the noise and also the speed of that traffic," says Sussex Police Chief Constable Jo Shiner (pictured) on this week's Highways Voices, "But then there are others who will persistently put pictures of where the safety cameras are, whether it’s on Facebook or other social media, almost to say this is here, and almost make it ineffective.”

The head of roads policing in the UK joins us on this week's podcast to discuss making our roads safer, and the role of technology in doing so. She also discusses a graduated driving license, eCall, and tougher sentences for drivers breaking the rules.

“If you actually compare some of the sentences that drivers who do kill people, because of their way in which they drive on the roads, versus maybe some other crimes in society, predominantly, you see that those sentences are lower,” she said. “And that’s just one example where I think families are not feeling that they do get the justice that sometimes they deserve.”

She even talks about why, when you’re driving perfectly safely and legally, if you see traffic police, for some reason you feel guilty!
