Fixed & Dummy Cameras (3519_16)


Can you tell me how many Notice of Intended prosecutions were sent out for speeding offences detected by fixed safety cameras on Wolverhampton Road between the M5 and Hagley Road West in 2015, and 2016 up to 21/03/2016, with location of camera for each. I did read the cameras are turned off and have no film in which case can you confirm this?

Can you also tell me whether West Midlands Police employ “dummy” flashes in their safety cameras, and if so, at what sites? What is the purpose of these?


All fixed gatso cameras were turned off in 2013. Therefore there are no offences recorded by these cameras.


If dummy cameras are deployed this would be done so by the Local Authority of the area. West Midlands Police do not hold this information.
