Car Insurance: 'Speed guns to catch criminals'

Tuesday, 22 January 2008

Speed guns may be about to be utilised in one area outside of Norwich in the attempt to catch law-breakers.

If the plans by Speed Watch, the community scheme, come to fruition then drivers will receive notification of their speeding activities through the post, reports the Norwich Evening News.

Bowthorpe and Costessey Safer Neighbourhood Team member Police Constable Mick Barker noted that the organisation has placed these issues at the top of its agenda.

"Myself and colleagues have undertaken some monitoring and enforcement work in recent weeks as have specialist officers from our road policing unit," he told the publication.

New Costessey South Norfolk councillor John Denby added that there is a major problem in the street, where drivers regularly break the speed limit.

This week it was revealed that drivers given points on their license in error, something that could affect their car insurance premiums, have not yet seen the problem fixed by Gwynedd council.
