Hodnet's Speed Camera

Those residents who are concerned about vehicles speeding along the main road through Hodnet will be pleased to hear that, from 1st August 2011, a regime of speed camera enforcement has been agreed.
West Mercia Safer Roads Partnership announced the decision last week, after having undertaken a period of traffic speed monitoring near the school. The results showed that some 64% of vehicles passing the sample point exceeded the 30 MPH limit.
Last Saturday’s Shropshire Star (page 10) carried the news in some detail; but in short agreement has been reached on a suitable location for random visits by a mobile speed camera van, which will be located on Shrewsbury Street.
