Cameras which measure the average speed of vehicles could be installed on “Scotland’s deadliest road” in an effort to cut accidents.
The A9 Safety Group has suggested the cameras be placed between Inverness and Dunblane.
Nearly 700 drivers were caught speeding on the 140-mile stretch of road in August.
The proposals have been welcomed by some safety campaigners but others say bad driver behaviour also needs to be addressed.
Nearly 70 people were killed on the road between 2006 and 2010, giving the A9 the highest number of fatalities of any road in Scotland.
The A90 was the second deadliest road with a death toll of 51 over five years.
