Speeding operations in Welwyn Hatfield - Road Safety Week
Main article content
The Welwyn Hatfield Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) have carried out operations as part of the national Road Safety Week.
Road Safety Week, led by the National Police Chiefs’ Council, ran from Monday 3 October and one of its aims was to educate road users on the dangers of speeding.
On Monday 3 October, the Welwyn Hatfield SNT conducted speed checks in Herns Lane, Welwyn Garden City and Ridgeway in Cuffley.
PC Lauren McKeever, from the Welwyn Hatfield SNT, said: “We chose these two locations as residents have regularly shared their concerns that drivers are speeding along these roads.
“During our operations, we found that the vast majority were driving within the speed limits but sadly we did have to stop a few vehicles to give the drivers words of advice.
“Please remember, the speed limit on Herns Lane is 30mph and on Ridgeway it is 40mph.
“We understand residents’ concerns about speeding and I hope that these operations are reassuring to you. Please keep on using our community voice platform, echo, to let us know where speeding is a problem. We regularly read through your submissions and it proves crucial in helping us know where to target our operations.”
