Please see below for a message from the Community Policing Team about their efforts to make the roads safer – with the results from the new ANPR (automatic number plate recognition) cameras installed on the Rissington Road in Bourton on the Water.
Over the past 3 weeks officers have been monitoring the ANPR cameras in Bourton on the Water in the hope of catching prolific speeders and to gather intelligence.
After viewing the data and photos captured by the cameras, the North Cotswolds Neighbourhood Policing Team have sent letters and visited drivers at their home address’ to educate and warn them about their speeding. One offender has been caught driving through the village in broad daylight at 58 mph in the 30 mph zone.
Another driver visited at his home address was caught at speeds of 52mph, 49mph, 45mph and 44mph on separate occasions in a 30 mph area and was given a warning about his actions.
Police will be continuing the monitor these cameras – aided by the Bourton on the Water Parish Council – to identify speeders and gather intelligence in the coming months.
