Speed Monitoring update - NR30

Alert message sent 16/09/2020 08:48:00

Information sent on behalf of Leicestershire Police

Morning all - Please see below an update on speed monitoring for our area.

We all want to arrive safely at our destination. By slowing down we make our roads safer for our children, families and friends. Research shows that a 5% cut in average speed can result in a 30% reduction in the number of fatal road traffic crashes.

In response to concerns raised to us by you and local residents, through Neighbourhood Link Surveys, Social Media and Face to Face Interaction we have completed the following speed enforcement in August at the following locations, see the results below:

A606 Ab Kettleby (30mph), 1 hour 50 minutes, 24 offences.
A606 Nottingham Road, Melton Mowbray, 3 hours 25 minutes, 7 offences.
A607 Melton Road, Waltham, 1 hour 50 minutes, 0 offences.
A607 Route: (Leicester Rd, Hoby & Roth'by 60mph), 1 hour 29 minutes, 4 offences.
B6047 Main Street, Great Dalby, 1 hour 50 minutes, 3 offences.
B6047 Thorpe Satchville Road, Twyford (30mph), 3 hours 28 minutes, 24 offences.

Think the police should have better things to do than pick on speeders?

Everyday 5 people are killed on UK roads.

We think that’s well worth our attention.

Thank you.

PCSO Biggs 6171.
