If you're planning to put on your motorcycle clothing this weekend and take your bike out for a spin, chances are you'll run into a speed camera.

However, according to a recent study by the Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM), most of you won't be filled with distaste as you pass them by.

In a survey it was revealed that 82 per cent of people now think it is acceptable for authorities to use speed cameras and recognise the role they play in improving road safety.

What's more, 72 per cent of motorists support speed awareness courses. However, among some factions there is still scepticism about the reasons behind their use.

IAM claim that 45 per cent of road users believe that cameras are primarily employed as a money making venture.

Simon Best, chief executive of the IAM, commented: "Speed cameras are an essential part of the policing toolkit and are becoming more and more accepted, but it’s clear that some people need reassuring about their purpose and funding."
