50mph Speed Restrictions on the M54

Figures recently released show that more than 5,000 motorists have been caught speeding on the M54 since a 50mph speed limit was introduced over 2 months ago between junctions 2 and 3.

The speed limit is in force for at least a year and should act as a warning now that there are similar average speed cameras operating between junctions 6 and 7.

It suggests people do not understand how they work as I often see people ignoring the clear warnings of the reduced speed, and then slamming on their brakes when they see the yellow camera - by which point the damage is done.
