Police in Norfolk increasing speed checks in rural areas

The eight-week trial will see officers target rural areas that have been historically hard to monitor.

The Safety Camera Team has identified more than 80 locations across the county that could be vulnerable to speeding.

The initiative involves deploying officers on motorbikes to villages and small country lanes with the hope of “reducing the number of speeding reports” the force receives. 

Safety Camera Officer Malcolm Fitzsimmons, who conducted checks in Hempnall on August 8, said: “Contrary to the opinions of some, we do not complete speed checks because they’re ‘cash cows’, and our aim is not to catch as many drivers as possible.

“Checks are done primarily to prevent further speeding and change the behaviour of offending drivers.”

Before the scheme, checks were done using Speed Data Recorders to monitor motorists on the A1075 in Stow Bedon.

It was found that 44pc of vehicles broke the speed limit, an average of 216 vehicles per hour.

Mr Fitzsimmons added: “Checks here wouldn’t have been possible before and we hope our presence will decrease the number of speeders.”
