Back to school warning: This is where mobile speed cameras are going to be in Gloucestershire

Schools are back and the roads will be returning to their usual congested state during peak times.

But if you get a break in the traffic jams, don’t try to make up for lost time by speeding.

Because there are lots of places were you could get flashed.

Mobile speed cameras are out there and they have their trained eye on people flouting the law.

These are the locations for mobile speed cameras in Gloucestershire in February and they are there to keep our roads safer.

We are sharing this information, publicly available, in a bid to raise awareness of the need to obey speed limits.

This February, the priority speed sites are:

  • A40 at Churcham School
  • A48 at Westbury, Minsterworth (Severn Bore)
  • Lydney Bypass
  • Woolaston

 

Why are there speed vans?

The Mobile Camera Enforcement Unit, part of Gloucestershire County Council, is committed to reducing risks to road users caused by vehicles travelling at excessive speeds.

The mobile speed detection vans operate at over 80 sites across the county and prioritise site activity by examining speed and accident data including intelligence received from communities.

In an effort to reduce speeding in areas across the county, the priority sites will be advertised each month.

Visits to the other sites will continue but emphasis will be placed on the advertised locations.

The Mobile Camera Enforcement Unit said the presence of a speed camera will encourage drivers to change their behaviour and drive at a lower, safer speed.

It adds: “This will help to improve the quality of life for people living in these areas and improve the safety of the roads for all those who use them.”

And it’s not just the mobile ones you have to be aware of as there are also a number of community priority sites.
