Hereford drivers warned ahead of police partnership project
3:39pm Monday 11th March 2013 in News
CONCERNED residents hope that new anti-speeding measures will slow traffic on Old School Lane in Hereford.
Reports of speeding sparked an investigation by West Mercia Police’s Safer Roads Partnership that revealed “a significant speed compliance problem”.
Six out of 10 drivers exceeded the speed limit on the 30mph road running from the Blind College to Roman Road, with 15% driving at over 38 miles per hour.
Police are now launching a mobile speed enforcement site to clock drivers’ speeds for at least six months, and will continue collecting data over that period.
Safer Roads Partnership spokesman Anna Higgins said: “Old School Lane covers both residential areas and industrial units and local residents were understandably concerned about the excessive speed of some drivers.”
