Speed Checks outside of Katherine Lady Berkeley School

 

 

On Tuesday 11th March 2014 Pc Charlie Sallis and Pc Kelly Akers conducted Speed Checks outside of Katherine Lady Berkeley School, Wotton under Edge. They were assisted by Pcso Josh Griffiths, Pcso Paul Bowman from the mobile Police Station, Pete Wilson from Stroud District Council and two HM Revenue and Customs officers.

The aim of this was to educate drivers on their speed especially considering it is outside of a very busy school. 150 cars were checked and out of this amount there were 4 vehicles in excess of the 30mph speed limit.

We would like to advise all drivers of the importance of staying within the speed limit for the road, it is essential for the safety of all road users.

The general advice is that there should be No Persons on site during the weekend having any access to the building area. It is advised that the local community call the 101 number should there be anyone 'on site' during the weekend or later during the week days. As police we will attend and ask the individuals to account for why they are on site.
