Driver clocked going 52mph in 30mph speed zone in Lane End
A SPEED awareness campaign in Lane End continued for another week, where 62 motorists were caught speeding.
The second Lane End Speed Awareness Week was completed on September 29 and was set up due to the number of complaints form villagers about speeding vehicles.
The initiative brought together residents, Lane End Parish Council and the police to tackle the problem directly.
The week began with PCSO Penny Ling giving a road safety talk to Lane End Primary School pupils, who then took part in a poster competition with a prize of £25 John Lewis voucher donated by the Grouse and Ale pub.
The posters were displayed along the roadside and several residents and children helped operate a speed indication device during the week.
Fixed penalty notices were given to 62 motorists who were speeding - all travelling at a minimum of 37mph in a 30mph zone. Some of those caught were persistent speeders who had only recently been on speed awareness courses.
The fastest speeds recorded were 52 and 49mph.
The neighbourhood policing team is also pleased to announce no criminal offences were reported in the village during the week.
Although the immediate campaign has now finished, police will continue to conduct speed enforcement checks throughout the area.
