A Garston county councillor is glad to announce more resources will be available to tackle speeding in the local area.
At a recent Hertfordshire County Council meeting, cllr Tim Williams questioned Herts Police Commissioner David Lloyd, about local police having the resources to tackle speeding with “full vigour”.
The police commissioner confirmed extra resources will be coming later this year particularly with the delivery of two new speed camera enabled road safety vans.
During the Community Safety Cabinet Panel meeting on February 9, cllr Tim Williams highlighted that he found “speeding an abhorrent anti-social behaviour that can have tragic consequences” and asked for “the assurance that Herts Police will now be going for speeders with full vigour”.
David Lloyd confirmed that Herts Police will have more police next year and that in each district a van will be based for a whole day every week.
Cllr Tim Williams welcomed the initiative of the two vans as he’s been lobbying for greater resources to tackle speeding for many years.
He requested the vans to monitor known hotspots like the A405 in North Watford/Garston where many drivers ignore the established speed limit.
