It would be interesting to know if accidents have increased on this stretch of the A3 since the speed camera was removed (near South Lane exit) BUT the white lines remain. People who know there is no camera are maintaining speed while others are slamming on brakes when they see the lines! Seems to me there has been an increase.

Irish Lass:

I do not believe the removal of the Gatso speed camera on the Northbound A3 by Elmbridge Avenue has led to any increase in accidents.

From what I see in person driving on the A3 and from news articles on here, a majority of accidents / bumps / injuries in the New Malden / Tolworth areas occur on the Southbound carriageway.
There is constant 'bunching' of traffic as you go down the hill from Malden Junction and normally for no reason other than motorists who insist on doing 35mph past the camera on the southbound road.

Speed cameras can be more trouble than they are worth in my opinion.
