Police target speeding drivers following complaints
KNUTSFORD police paid a visit to some of the area’s villages to try and advise motorists about their speeding.
Officers, along with Knutsford’s firefighters, visited Ashley and High Legh on Monday to take part in a ‘driver engagement’ day.
Five drivers were caught in the 40mph zone in West Lane, High Legh – one for no seat belt and four for speeding.
Recorded speeds for those caught ranged from 48mph to 52mph.
All opted to watch the DVD provided by the fire service rather than accepting a fixed penalty ticket.
The officers then moved on to Ashley at 10.45am for an hour and watched the speed limit on Ashley Road, outside the Greyhound pub.
Two drivers were caught and both watched the DVD.
PCSO Lyndsey Whitehead added the areas were targeted after complaints.
“Both were done because parish councils and local people have complained about speeding,” she said.
