An ongoing police clampdown on Gedling borough’s antisocial drivers has seen officers nab dozens of bad drivers who play fast and furious with the law.

And members of Gedling’s dedicated team of pro-active Special Constables were out in force again on Sunday night (Sunday 20 September 2020) targeting drivers speeding on Carlton Hill.

The latest location was chosen by the team following reports from members of the public raising concerns in relation to speeding motorists in the area.

During their patrols, the team checked more than 40 vehicles. Seven motorists were issued with Notices of Intended Prosecution for considerably exceeding the speed limit, whilst a further nine were given words of advice and time to fix identified vehicle defects.

The patrols form part of an ongoing initiative aimed at reducing crime across the Gedling Borough area, with speed enforcement sites being identified as a direct result of public feedback.

Special Constable Dominic Hotham, who forms part of the pro-active team, said: “These latest results come following public feedback and as a team we’re keen to tackle issues that affect communities the most.

“We will continue taking action using a combination of both enforcement and educational tactics to reduce crime across the area.

”The team continually review feedback and intelligence received from the public and welcome conversation.

Residents are now calling on the officers to target Colwick Loop Road, with one describing the route as ‘the best race track in Nottingham’.
