New mobile cameras for Speedwatch

Tim Passmore, Police and Crime Commissioner for Suffolk was pleased to support a new new initiative by  Suffolk Constabulary and Suffolk County Council to supply new speeding signs for the county.

Ten temporary Vehicle Activated Signs (VAS) and ten mobile tripod-mounted signs will now be used across the county.

The temporary VAS, which display vehicle speeds, will be moved to locations across Suffolk identified by Suffolk Constabulary, county and parish councillors as having the biggest impact.

The mobile signs will be used by the Community Speedwatch groups for up to four weeks at a time.

Officers have already met with more than 30 groups and explained how the signs can be used to enhance their existing Speedwatch activities.

Some have even already started using the kit.

Tim Passmore, Suffolk Police and Crime Commissioner, said: “Reminding drivers to keep to the speed limits is an important part of the Highway Code.

“Better road safety in Suffolk is a major priority of our new Police and Crime Plan. The new equipment will help to deliver this objective. I am very supportive of this initiative.”
