Speeding tickets issued as police crackdown continues on motorists breaking the limit in Burton Joyce and Carlton


Speeding tickets were issued to motorists by police during the latest crackdown on drivers breaking the limit in Gedling borough.

PCSOs headed out to Southdale Road in Carlton and Nottingham Road in Burton Joyce, last week as part of their continued crackdown on drivers they say are ‘speeding and ignoring the law’.

The team handed out three fixed penalty notices to motorists driving over the speed limit and spoke to 11 others about abiding by the road laws and keeping to the limits.

The operation has been put in place to address the community’s concerns surrounding speeding in hotspot areas.

They will be issuing fines to those caught blatantly speeding in 30mph and 20mph zones and putting lives at risk.

Officers say their presence also helps to deter those thinking about speeding. It also gives them the chance to stop and chat with motorists about the dangers of speeding and encourage drivers to drive safely to protect themselves and others.

A spokesman for Nottinghamshire Police said: “The team will be continuing its crackdown on speeding so if you see them out and want to raise any concerns, stop and have a chat.
