Mobile speed enforcement
Mobile speed enforcement is provided by West Yorkshire Police on behalf of West Yorkshire Casualty Reduction Partnership and operates in known casualty zones.
Enforcement is established following a high number of accidents and speed surveys demonstrating widespread non compliance with the speed limit. They have also been established to counter antisocial speeding when concern has been expressed by residents.
The enforcement vehicles use equipment that is type approved by the Home Office. The equipment utilises a laser which operates effectively in a wide range of weather and light conditions, enabling enforcement throughout the year. Equipment is calibrated according to Home Office and manufacturers guidelines and checks are completed by specially trained operators prior to use.
Enforcement can be expected at any of the lengths for concern at any time 7 days a week. Our vehicles are highly visible and do not operate covertly..
The key purpose of a mobile enforcement is to reduce accidents.
