Speeding drivers in your area targeted as part of Wiltshire roads policing campaign

Alert message sent 20/11/2020 16:20:00

Information sent on behalf of Wiltshire Police

Speeding drivers have been targeted over the last two days in the Amesbury area as part of our week-long road safety campaign to reduce seriously injured and fatal road traffic collisions (RTCs) in Wiltshire.

The Amesbury neighbourhood policing team conducted speed checks on London Road, Shrewton yesterday (19/11).

Four traffic offence reports (TORs) were issued for speeds of over 40mph in a 30mph zone, while six drivers were given words of advice.

Today (20/11) officers were at Middle Woodford and issued two TORs for exceeding 40mph in a 30mph zone.

PC Lyndsey Smith said: “These are two locations that have been identified as having the highest speeds across the Amesbury area at the moment.

“All drivers were fully compliant when we stopped them and were accepting that they were speeding and were apologetic.

“The impact of a collision with a car travelling over the speed limit can be catastrophic, especially at this time of year when road conditions are affected by water, leaves and mud.

“If you have concerns of speeding in your area, we encourage you to contact your local authority to report it.”
