Police and Crime Commissioner uses extra funds to tackle speeding in Worcestershire

Ross Crawford 12th Jan, 2021

THE Police and Crime Commissioner John Campion has funded an extra pro laser speed gun to tackle speeding in North Worcestershire.

The new speed gun will augment existing equipment used by the police to catch motorists who flout the limit, whilst responding to the concerns of local residents about speeding in their communities.

The new kit forms part of the PCC’s commitment to making roads safer in West Mercia.

PCC Campion said: “Bad habits and bad road behaviour, once formed, can be hard to shift which is why we need to be doing all we can to make our roads safer.

“Reducing people’s speed forms part of this.

“Too many people die or are seriously injured on our roads, and with many areas currently seeing icy conditions, it is vital we protect our communities by driving safely and sticking to the speed set for the road.”
