North Yorkshire Police safety (speed) vans caught 135 motorists speeding on roads near York in April.
The majority of the offenders were detected on the A64.
Most of the offenders have been referred for speed awareness courses although 8 face a court appearance for more serious violations
The figures for the period between 8th – 23rd April are detailed on the police web site (click)
In addition to speeding offences, 6 drivers were found not to be wearing seat belts.
The figures also reveal that the vans have not been used to check vehicle speeds in the urban area.
This may prove to be a controversial use of resources as “reassurance checks” in residential areas have been promised by Chief Constables in the past.
