Speed Watch Continues

Alert message sent 30/09/2020 21:22:00

Information sent on behalf of South Yorkshire Police

Officers from the Hoyland team carried out two speed monitoring operations today.

On Armroyd Lane, 37 vehicles were checked, with only 4 being marginally over the limit. Those 4 were stopped and the driver educated at the scene.

Whilst a little later over on Sheffield Road by the Lidget Garage, 71 vehicles were checked, and we are pleased to report that no cars were over the limit.

Remember, this type of operation is about education rather than enforcement, and it is hoped that this approach will encourage drivers to think about the manner of their driving.

Speed monitoring operations are here to stay. Watch for one near you soon.
