New speed camera van locations in Leicestershire

Residents in many of our towns and villages feel their lives blighted by the anti-social effects of excessively speeding traffic through their communities.

In response to this, detailed covert traffic speed surveys are undertaken and if a particular location meets the Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland Road Safety Partnership (LLRRSP) criteria it will become a community concern site and will benefit from regular speed camera van visits over the course of approximately eighteen months.

From this weekend speed enforcement will commence at the following community concern sites in both Leicester and Leicestershire:

  • Liberty Road, Glenfield

  • Henley Road, Leicester

  • Glenfield Road, Leicester

  • Melton Spinney Road, Melton Mowbray

  • Swithland Lane, Rothley

  • Coopers Lane, Dunton Bassett

  • B582 Blaby Road, Enderby (30mph)

  • Broughton Road, Croft

  • Brookfield Way, Lutterworth

  • Riverside Way, Littlethorpe

  • Coventry Road, Burbage

  • Main Street, Swannington

  • Peckleton Lane, Desford

  • Brascote Lane, Newbold Verdon

  • Ashby Road, Donisthorpe

  • Burton Road, Ashby

  • Measham Road, Moria / Donisthorpe (30mph & 40mph)

Jonathan Clarkson, LLRRSP spokesperson, said, “The difference between a few miles per hour can be the difference between life and death.

A speed limit is not a target; you should always drive at a speed suited to the weather conditions and type of road, but not in excess of the advised speed limit.

Make sure you drive at a safe speed at all times.”

Speed camera facts and myths:

It can often be the case that motorists think they’ve got a pretty good idea about speeding enforcement and road safety in general, however, this isn’t always the case. We don’t resort to sneaky tactics to catch speeding drivers or put speed cameras in places just to make money.

Some of the most common misconceptions are:

  • You have to be a police officer - No, the enforcement officer can be a civilian who has authorisation from the Chief Constable.

  • You have to be visible – No, there are no laws about visibility, however, we maintain that being visible acts as a deterrent so therefore we only used marked vehicles and all speed cameras are Hi-Vis yellow.

  • You have to put signs out – No, we do not have to place any signs at an enforcement site, however, to assist those drivers who are unsure of the speed limit a sign is fixed to the street furniture or placed at the roadside before entering the enforcement area. NB only at our core enforcement sites.

  • The threshold for speeding is 10% + 2mph, so I can travel at 35mph in a 30mph limit -Thresholds vary and can change without notice. Any offence occurs at 1mph over the limit, officially you can be prosecuted at that speed, however, most forces will allow a variance.

  • Where we park - A camera van isn’t subject to parking regulations when carrying out speed enforcement, however, we expect our staff to use discretion & common sense while adhering to local guidelines & designated parking locations.
