Apparently the police have announced they are going to publish details relating to every speed camera in Britain, including statistics about accident rates before and after the introduction of the cameras.

This strikes me as something the public will be very interested in. Certainly I have had my share of people complaining about some of the more ridiculous sitings of cameras in Birmingham, the Hagley Road in particular, where wide sweeps of highway have a 30mph speed limit that appear to be a licence to print money. Perhaps the figures will show the police are right... but at least we will be able to judge for ourselves.
