Police out doing speed checks

April 23, 2020 8:48 AM

Yesterday (22nd), The Neighbourhood Teams in Trowbridge and Bradford on Avon conducted speed checks around various towns and locations, including Trowbridge, Bradford on Avon, Melksham and Atworth.

All drivers who passed through the check areas were adhering to the posted speed limits.

The police say: "I'm sure you'll be thinking? "AH YES, BUT YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN HERE AT THIS TIME"; but I can assure you those checks were in response to members of the public's concerns. Yes, drivers may have slowed down because we were there, but we have to be "there " to do the speed checks."

The concerns have arisen because of a small number of drivers taking advantage of the low traffic levels. However it's clear that nearly all drivers are being sensible and considerate. Apart from anything else, most people are not in a desperate hurry to get somewhere at the moment!
