Speed checks continue across Richmondshire

Police have continued to target speeding drivers in Richmondshire.

Neighbourhood officers have been conducting speed checks in rural villages that have requested help to tackle speeding drivers, with officers also targeting three locations in the Leyburn area.

Inspector Martin Metcalfe, from Richmondshire neighbourhood policing team, said: “The results have been interesting and overall I am pleased with what I have seen this week as most motorists seem to be abiding with the speed limit, although there was some disappointment when today I had two local people doing 40mph in a 30mph, one being a local business in Leyburn.

“Hopefully you are happy with what we are trying to achieve, by making your communities safer and understand we cannot be everywhere all of the time. I have also met quite a few residents who are all telling me they are very pleased to see us in the area, so we will continue to keep making an appearance when we can.”

Insp Metcalfe added: “I hope you all have a great weekend and next month I will update you all with our overall speed results in November.”
