The force has previously published an update of where the cameras will be every two weeks, however there is no legal obligation to do this.

The change will be trialled for a month in January, and the results of this trial will determine whether or not the locations will be published in the future.

A spokesperson for CREST Derbyshire (Casualty Reduction Enforcement Support Team) said: “For a trial month we are not publishing our enforcement locations. We do not legally have to publish them,but we have historically advertised our sites.
