A speed awareness campaign launched today (Monday) by Avon and Somerset Constabulary targets drivers who exceed the limit in areas across North Somerset.
During this week, speed enforcement officers and volunteers from surrounding Community Speedwatch groups have been placed in areas which are known for people committing the offence.
The campaign ends on Sunday and the police force is also targeting drivers in Bristol and Somerset.
Head of road safety at Avon and Somerset police, Superintendent Andy Williams, said: “Speeding has a significant factor in many road traffic collisions and we are very grateful to volunteers and members of the community for playing a part in keeping the roads safe for everyone.”
People caught speeding will be sent a warning letter and advice, but further action will be taken against repeat and high-end speed offenders in the area.
