The organisation recently released the Reported Road Casualties in Great Britain: Quarterly Provisional Estimates Q1 2011, which showed the number of people killed or seriously injured in the year ending March 2011 dropped.
According to the report, 1,870 motorists killed and 24,770 killed or seriously injured in the 12-month period - a fall of ten and five per cent respectively compared to the previous year. There were also five per cent fewer casualties - made up of slight injuries, serious injuries and deaths - as well as three per cent fewer child casualties.
What's more, the number of road accidents that resulted in an injury dropped by five per cent again - to 154,030.
And it could be that this positive data is linked to another statistic given by the Department for Transport: that the amount of traffic actually on the road in the 12-month period fell by 0.7 per cent.
Speed camera detectors may be the perfect device for drivers who want to reduce the likelihood of them speeding while on the roads and getting into accidents because of dangerous driving.
The gadgets have numerous special features that can help their owners drive safer. For example, many have voice alerts letting the driver know how fast they are driving, as well as advanced warnings of the location of speed cameras on the road.
This extra information will obviously help motorists stick to the speed limit, and also means they don't have to dangerously slam on the brakes when they notice an upcoming speed camera, as they will have already known well in advance that it was there.
