Arrive Alive's Criteria for Targeting Speeding Roads and Frequency of Visits

Arrive Alive's Site says

Which roads are targeted?
All routes within the scheme are analysed and are identified as high-risk roads i.e. roads which have a significant number of collisions and casualties and where speeding is a problem. Fixed or mobile safety cameras will then monitor these roads. There are now 61 routes targeted by the Arrive Alive partnership. All these routes are publicised and signed ( No signs Penyffordd or Broughton); all vans and fixed cameras are highly visible and mobile camera locations are publicised on a weekly basis via the local media and this website under the schedule section.

The program is not about raising revenue, it’s about saving lives. Careful drivers who adhere to the speed limits will not fund the scheme; those who are caught exceeding the speed limit will not be stopped, but will be notified by post. All monies raised from the campaign can only go to fund additional cameras; members of the partnership cannot use it for any other purpose other than the Arrive Alive safety camera campaign.

Also this.

Arrive Alive Camera Van Location Schedule

Subject to changes to the guidelines governing Safety Camera Partnerships, weekly schedules will not be available from Arrive Alive from the 7th May 2007. Arrive Alive safety cameras will be deployed widely througout North Wales. Where safety cameras operate there will be permanent or portable camera signs to advise drivers. (not in Penyffordd or Broughton.)

We are here

I think we have been altered , thank you very much.
I expect we will be added to the new website.
I notice there is an Arrive Alive in South Africa. click here.
Also here in Australia. Click here.
Random cameras for Cumbria under rules change. Click here?
Rules change will allow :-
From today , mobile camera teams will be able to operate on any road and will sometimes work in pairs, with camera vans placed a mile or two apart, to catch drivers who accelerate back over the limit.

Also stated
He said that Cumbria was adopting the new policy after studying research from Queensland, Australia, which showed that random camera deployment was twice as effective at reducing crashes as focusing on well-known sites. A growing number of drivers have satellite positioning systems, which alert them when they are approaching cameras. Cumbria’s random approach means that these systems will no longer be as effective.

Cumbria carried out its own research into how drivers responded to cameras and found that 15 per cent slowed down only briefly at a camera site on a 40mph road.

Are there any Political forces at play on Arrive Alive's Targeted Area?
