A Transport Scotland spokesman said: “Road safety is paramount, which is why we are committed to achieving safer road travel, reducing the number of serious injuries and working towards an ultimate vision of zero fatalities on our roads.
“The £2 million investment in average speed cameras on the A90, between Dundee and Stonehaven, has already helped to significantly improve driver behaviour and speed limit compliance on the route.”
Arron Duncan, north safety camera unit manager, said: “On the route there are two speed limits, with the 50mph section at Laurencekirk.
“Drivers need to make sure they are following and adhering to the changes in speed limits there as it does seem to catch a number of people out.
“Those who make a conscious decision to speed will be dealt with.
“If they are prepared to take the risk, they need to deal with the risk of getting caught.”
