Road Safety Bureau

The purpose of The Road Safety Bureau is to make the roads in County Durham and Darlington safer by reducing offences such as speeding, not wearing a seatbelt and using mobile phones. The Road Safety Bureau deploys cameras at nominated sites across County Durham and Darlington. Drivers found committing an offence are encouraged to take the speed awareness course if they qualify. 

The speed awareness course is an alternative to the fixed penalty process, being fined and getting three penalty points on your licence, when your speed has been recorded marginally above the limit.
