South Wales Police:- Speeding Patrols

Written by on 10th June 2020

South Wales Police say they have been listening and responding to your concerns about speeding – and over the last month officers have been carrying out targeted operational activity to enforce speed limits and respond to anti-social vehicle behaviour to keep you safe. 

The areas of concern the public have been informing the police of have enabled officers to carry out specific patrols.

Within this time period, officers have dealt with;

💨 Over 400 offences of speeding
⚠️ Issued more than 250 warnings
🚫 Over 50 traffic offence reports
🏍️ Seized numerous vehicles for anti-social vehicle use
❌ 12 arrests of other offences including drink and drug driving, which were made as a direct result of targeting the specific locations

Leading on the operation, Inspector David Patalano said: “Roads policing officers have been out in communities engaging, educating and enforcing during this unprecedented time.

 “Speed enforcement is not in place to target key workers – it is purely aimed at reinforcing the law, government guidelines and the speed limit to all.”

The safety of road users remains a priority, and officers continue to work hard to meet the needs of all our communities during this challenging period.
