Wednesfield Police “As requested we have been continuing with the speed watch operations, This week Planetary Road and Fitzmaurice Road have been covered, only 1 vehicle was clocked doing over 30 mph in Fitzmaurice, but on Planetary Road there were 9 vehicles clocked doing between 35 and 43 mph.
In addition to this a lot of our time has been taken up with the floods and also Bentley Bridge retail park with all the anti social behaviour with youths on bikes, a “Section 35″ dispersal order has been in place and several warnings have been issued with 2 arrests as the warnings were breached, the bikes have been seized and will be returned in due course.
There have also been several arrests for theft and several vehicles removed from the roads for varying offences, all in all it has been a very busy week.”
Councillor Bateman further added ” I want to thank Wednesfield Police for their activity. I note that only 1 vehicle was observed breaking the speed limit on Fitzmaurice Road, this is to be something that is welcomed. But the activity also showed that roads where there are reports of speed taking place do get checked. That is also to be welcomed.”
