Police Reveal Speed Camera Locations

For the first time, drivers in Gloucestershire can find out exactly where a mobile speed device is going to be before they are potentially snapped breaking the law.

Starting in August and running monthly, locations are set to be published on the Road Safety Partnership's website. 

The only catch is that drivers will not know the exact days the vans are operating. 

Police say the list of roads being monitored will be updated every month and eventually, the information will be put on the force website and its Twitter feed as well. 

People will also be able to see how many people are breaking the speed limit and how many have been fined. 

Martin Surl, Police and Crime Commissioner for Gloucestershire said:

"This isn't about catching people out - we're trying to influence and educate motorists into acting more responsibly and I'm really pleased people will have access to this information and will be able to see just how active we are."

"Safe and social driving is one of the priorities of my Police and Crime Plan. I am determined to help people move around our communities in safety and with as much ease as possible and this will make a significant contribution to that aim.

 

The sites for August are:

A4013 Princess Elizabeth Way, Cheltenham

A48 Woolaston

A40 Hampnett, Cotswolds

Minchinhampton common, Stroud

A4173 St Peters School, Stroud Road, Gloucester

A4019 Tewkesbury Road, Uckington
