THE county’s mobile speed camera locations are being posted online for the first time.

Gloucestershire’s Road Safety Partnership is to reveal the locations of its mobile speed detection vans on its website.

The list will be updated each month and posted alongside information on the previous month, such as how many drivers were caught out and fined.

Rob Vestey, from the Road Safety Partnership, said: “This is all about reducing speeds across the county and particularly those hotspot areas that have been identified.

“It also shows us acting on community concerns and will provide people with clear information on what we have found.

“We won’t be advertising the days we will be at each site but if someone looks at the list and adjusts their behaviour when they are driving along that road clearly this will have been a success.”

The six roads that have been identified as a priority by local people and police officers for the upcoming month are already available to view online.

In future, information will also be posted on Gloucestershire Police’s website and Twitter feed.

Police and crime commissioner for Gloucestershire Martin Surl said that keeping roads safe is one of his main concerns.

He said: “Safe and social driving is one of the priorities of my Police and Crime Plan. I am determined to help people move around our communities in safety and with as much ease as possible and this will make a significant contribution to that aim.

“This isn’t about catching people out – we’re trying to influence and educate motorists into acting more responsibly and I’m really pleased people will have access to this information and will be able to see just how active we are.”

The sites within which the mobile speed detection vans will operate throughout August are as follows:

A4013 Princess Elizabeth Way, Cheltenham

A48 Woolaston

A40 Hampnett, Cotswolds

Minchinhampton Common, Stroud

A4173 St Peter’s School, Stroud Road, Gloucester

A4019 Tewkesbury Road, Uckington

It is great that Martin Surl says that keeping roads safe is one of his main concerns, what I don't understand how reducing the speed by anti social drivers for a short period will help eg advertising areas that the mobile units are out & about even if not specific days will only help short term, shorely to catch these people will deter them more when they are at risk of loosing there licence so in the long term maybe more people will forced to slow down!
