Speeding action in Kings Langley

 Published on: 16th February 2018   |   By: Nik Allen   |   Category: Uncategorized

Police are speaking to several speeding drivers after a traffic operation was conducted in Kings Langley.

After concerned residents made contact with police regarding speeding in the area, which includes Chipperfield and Bovingdon, regular meetings will now be held to target those breaking the law.

This follows a situation where PC Karl Diggins and PCOs Ian Martin and Bardhyl Agallili used a speed gun to check the speed of those travelling along Watford Road into Kings Langley and on Tower Hill in Chipperfield, towards Bovingdon.

As a result, two submission forms were issued, with drivers required to either attend a driving education course; given an offer of penalty, or face prosecution. Advice was also given to 10 drivers.

PC Diggins, who is organising the events, said: “Residents have told us they are concerned about vehicles speeding, so we will be carrying out regular operations on this to make our roads safer.

“Excess speed is one of the four main causes of traffic collisions.”

He begged drivers to consider the penalties of using the accelerator to save time, as more often than not, it causes collisions that seriously injure people.

Consequently, anyone who received a submission form could face points on their licence, a penalty or court hearing.
