18 vehicles exceeding 30 mph. The majority were between 30-35mph but there were was one at 42mph, one at 38 mph and 2 at 27 mph.
I still believe the SID device should be moved from Adel Lane to this location and wonder if this could be actioned or progressed with the Adel Association and Adel Crag.

19 vehicles exceeding 30mph. The majority were between 31-35 mph but there was one at 42mph, one at 41mph, one at 39mph, two at 38mph and one at 37mph.
The hand held speed camera was also deployed yesterday but none were exceeding the threshold to be issued a fixed penalty notice.

3 vehicles were traveling in excess of 30 mph between 31-35mph.
MOOR ROAD BRAMHOPE 1010-1035 hours
22 vehicles were travelling in excess of the 30 mph, this equated to almost 80% of the vehicles that passed me. One was travelling at 41mph, three at 40mph, two at 39mph, two at 38 mph and two at 37mph.
This location proved to be the worst location today.
PCSO’s also attended OLD POOL BANK for one hour regards the complaint of commuters cutting down the road despite it being an access only entry. Twenty vehicles were stopped in this time. They will return to this location tomorrow afternoon all being well.
