Exmouth police on SID in bid to cut speeding
PUBLISHED: 06:30 18 October 2015
Motorists caught driving over the 30mph speed limit during a recent police speed sting will receive warning letters.
The community police team used a speed indication device (SID) to monitor vehicle speed at Brixington Lane, close to the Cheriswood Avenue junction, with the aim of educating motorists.
Police said a speed laser gun could be used at the location, and motorists fined, if the problem persists.
Officers are inviting residents in other areas of Exmouth concerned by speeding to get in touch to arrange similar monitoring.
PCSO Chris Ball said: “With the speed of the road being 30mph, those travelling in excess of this limit will be sent letters warning of the consequences of speed. Unfortunately, the speed indication device is non-endorsable and only advisory.
“The purpose of such exercises is to highlight the speed of motorists in problem roads and to educate the public.”
