Police catch more speeding drivers in Catterick

Police say they have caught more speeding motorists in the district.

Officers carried out speed checks yesterday in Leyburn Road, outside Piave Lines, in Catterick Garrison, and Leeming Lane in Catterick Village.

Three drivers were caught exceeding the 30mph limit after being recorded travelling at 35 and 37mph.

PCSO Paul Enbom said: “We are conducting these checks as a result of complaints.

“There will be lots more speed checks in Catterick and surrounding areas, so please spread the word around as I would rather motorists slowed down, than they were caught speeding.

“There are even more locations that our safety camera vans will be appearing at on the main roads, so my message to anyone coming to our beautiful and very fine county of Richmondshire is, if you speed, you are now much more likely to be caught and prosecuted. Depending on the level of speed, you may be offered a speed awareness course or a roadside warning.”
