Speeding motorists targeted in Brinsley

Alert message sent 19/11/2011 18:02:00
Information sent on behalf of Nottinghamshire Police
Police are advising motorists to keep within the 30mph speed limit when driving through Brinsley and other towns and villages. Mobile speed cameras have been conducting frequent speed checks in Brinsley since early October 2011, and since then a high number of motorists have been prosecuted.
 
The minimum penalty for drivers caught speeding is a £60 fine and three penalty points added to their licence. More serious offences could lead to a court summons and possibly a driving ban.
 
At a recent priority setting meeting, where local residents can raise issues in their community, speeding has been highlighted as a priority in Brinsley and other areas of Broxtowe North.
 
PC Reynolds said: “Speeding has been raised as a common issue in Brinsley and surrounding areas. This has therefore been set as a priority for the Local Beat Teams to tackle.
 
In addition to the mobile speed cameras, the Brinsley and Eastwood North Local beat Team  PC Reynolds and PCSO Keeley will be visiting various highlighted locations and using hand held speed guns to identify motorists exceeding the limit set for that road.

PCSO Keeley said "The message is for motorists to slow down and drive safely. We do not want to see drivers receiving fines and points on their licences so please observe the speed limit on the roads wherever you are." 

The mobile speed cameras in Brinsley will continue to be deployed for an indefinite period.
