Speeding drivers caught in Police crackdown

27 drivers were caught speeding by officers from West Yorkshire Police’s Inner South Leeds team who conducted a Speed Watch operation on Sunday (10 May 2020).

Four locations were targeted in the operation:

  • Sharp Lane, Middleton (30mph)
  • Tempest Road, Beeston (20mph)
  • Old Lane, Beeston (30mph)
  • Pepper Road, Hunslet (20mph)

As a result, 27 drivers have been dealt with for exceeding the speed limit.

A spokesperson commented:

“Just because the traffic is different and there are less vehicles on the road, this doesn’t mean that the rules of the road are any different.

“Speeding is still a priority to our officers, with an attempt to alleviate any unnecessary extra staff to the NHS.”
