More than 100 caught speeding
MORE than 100 speeding vehicles were caught in just one hour in Clevedon.
The 106 drivers were clocked by volunteers and police officers who carried out a Speedwatch exercise on Thursday in three busy roads in the town - Central Way, Southern Way and Walton Road.
Drivers caught speeding above 36mph in a 30mph limit will get an official letter warning them that they have been caught speeding, although they are not fined and do not have their license endorsed.
The aim of Speedwatch is to slow vehicles down and volunteers wear fluorescent jackets to make them visible to drivers.
Speedwatch volunteer Dave Brockington said: “Walton Road is a particularly sensitive site as it is at the approach to Clevedon School.
