Morley police warn speeding motorists warned to watch out
Speeding motorists better watch out - SID’s about.
After concerns were raised about speeding by residents at PACT (Police and Communities Together) meetings, officers from Morley Neighbourhood Policing Team deployed the SID (Speed Indication Device) at several locations.
PSCOs Chris Long and Chantelle Garside deployed the SID in Drighlington on King Street and it detected four vehicles going over the limit.
They were signalled to slow down and will all be receiving warning letters in the post.
The device was then deployed on Old Road and Elland Road, at the junction of William Street in Churwell where no cars were found to be speeding.
Insp Paul Sullivan, who leads Morley NPT, said: “This device does not result in drivers receiving speeding fines but it gives officers an indication as the extent of the speeding problem, or whether there actually os one. “If a high number of vehicles are detected speeding, officers will re-attend with the Pro-Laser Speed Gun, which does mean a fine for all drivers caught exceeding the speed limit.”
