Almost 40 drivers were caught speeding in Nailsea during a road safety crackdown.

Police officers from Nailsea teamed up with Community Speedwatch (CSW) volunteers and special constables to run a road safety operation following complaints about speeding motorists and parking offences.

Almost 40 people face prosecution after they were caught breaking the limit, five people were reported for not wearing a seatbelt and another 28 drivers were caught speeding by the CSW volunteers and will be sent a warning letter.

Acting Sergeant Phil Rudden said: “Speeding is a regular complaint and by working with the community and our special constables I hope we’re sending a clear message that we take road safety seriously. The majority of the community supported and appreciated our efforts and we’ll be looking to repeat this activity in the coming months.”
