I didn't count them! But I guess I must have seen at least half a dozen between tesco roundabout and police station. They are temporary things on telescopic poles strapped to lampposts with a big box, presumably containing recording equipment at the base of each lamppost. Perhaps the police, who monitor this site may be able to enlighten us?

No they're not "local". Just counted from the Esso garage to the bus station, 11 cameras.
Personally, i think they must be doing some kind of traffic survey.

And it can be for checking speed limits or traffic activities, as said by other members.
But why are you so concerned about this thing?? Is there any particular reason??
