A speed camera designed to catch motorists committing up to five offences at the same time could be heading to Britain’s roads.
As well as catching speeding motorists, the Asset camera  should be able to pick out drivers who are not wearing seatbelts and accurately measure distances between moving cars to identify tailgating.
Asset (advanced safety and driver support for essential road transport) can also note number plates and recognise cars with out-of-date tax discs and no insurance.
Funded by the European commission, the camera system is being developed by a consortium that includes a number of European universities and research institutes and is being tested in Finland.
