POLICE are hoping to put the brakes on speeding drivers in Claverdon.

A new mobile speed camera on Station Road has been installed after residents raised concerns about the speed of traffic on the village’s main road.

According to recent statistics, four in every five drivers are exceeding the 30mph limit with one in every six travelling above 42mph.

Anna Higgins, communications manager at Warwickshire’s Safer Roads Partnership, said: “The speed data we collected in the area highlighted unacceptably high speeds and with a residential area nearby, residents are understandably concerned.

“The enforcement site in Claverdon is designed to address the high level of concern in the community. We hope the presence of a speed camera will encourage drivers to change their behaviour and drive at a lower, safer speed.

“This will help to improve the quality of life for people living in the area and improve the safety of the road for all those who use it.”
