Road users on the A9 are being urged to refresh their speed limit knowledge in advance of the new average speed camera system going live on Tuesday, October 28.

A new A9 Safety Group campaign intends to raise awareness of the appropriate speed limits on the 273-mile long route and gives drivers the knowledge that they need to stay legal and safe when they are behind the wheel.

A speed awareness campaign will hopefully lessen road accidents on the A9.

It will remind those driving cars that the national speed limit is 60mph on single carriageway sections, including the overtaking lanes, and 70mph on dual carriageways.

With the average speed camera system becoming operational at the end of the month, all drivers are being asked to visit www.A9road.info where the latest information on speed limits for all categories of vehicles is available.

There is also information on the 50 mph HGV pilot which will also begin, between Perth and Inverness, on October 28.
