Wednesfield Police have had this to say – Councillor Phil Bateman said “I want to say that the majority of folk who speak with me about these issues are in support of Police actions. They are aware of the fact that the Police are charged with the up holding of all our laws. They also know that we want even more police to deal with all the law breaking that takes place. We want to have a safer City, Town, and district. There will always be some people who take an opposing view. That is until speed kills, maims, is used in another law breaking incident, or damages other peoples property. We all want the Police the to act, so when you see the Police enforcing, traffic speed, taking an uninsured car or van, instead of criticising them, thank them!”
This is what Wednesfield Police have written today –
“Hi folks, as concerns have been raised in recent times, we have been conducting a series of Speedwatch operations across Wednesfield, so far we have covered Lower Prestwood Road, Amos Lane, Broad Lane North, Waddensbrook Lane, Wood End Road and Griffiths Drive. These ops will continue to happen over the coming weeks.
We have seen some very careful and respectful drivers in the main, but have also witnessed vehicles exceeding 40mph in 30mph zones.
We have received some very good feedback on “TWITTER” and also some frankly bemusing comments, but despite some people not being happy at us attempting to improve the safety of our roads, we shall continue as the majority of people see the bigger picture and agree that speeding IS an issue, after all SPEED KILLS, that’s why we have limits in place to suit the conditions of the road.Please let us know of your concerns and we will do our best to accommodate you.
