Eight vehicles will monitor accident routes and roads identified by members of the public to detect speeding, seat belt offences, mobile phone use and drivers not fully in control of their vehicles.

Supt Julian Platt said: “These vans have been liveried to provide a highly visible presence.

“We want drivers to see them and know we are there. The technicians are tasked to enforce in areas that will have the maximum impact on reducing road traffic collisions.”
