Seventeen new speed camera van locations to be patrolled around Leicestershire from this weekend

When speeding cars cause a danger and residents complain, the local road safety partnership goes out to investigate. And following covert speed surveys around Leicestershire, 17 new locations have been found to have a problem with traffic going at excessive speeds.

From this weekend, these 17 locations in Leicester and around the county’s towns and villages will be patrolled by the mobile speed camera van, which will visit each location for about two hours at a time during the coming months. They include sites in Lutterworth, Melton, Glenfield, Enderby, Ashby and more.

Jonathan Clarkson, LLRRSP spokesperson, said, “The difference between a few miles per hour can be the difference between life and death. A speed limit is not a target – you should always drive at a speed suited to the weather conditions and type of road, but not in excess of the advised speed limit.”

He added: “Make sure you drive at a safe speed at all times.”
