Speeding motorists fined in Colnbrook
MORE than 18 motorists have been issued with fixed penalty tickets after police carried out road checks in Colnbrook.
The neighbourhood team stopped drivers at various locations, including Colnbrook High Street, where nine drivers were fined for contravening the access prohibition.
Another nine drivers were issued with fixed penalty tickets for speeding and one motorist, who was caught doing 53mph in a 30mph zone, was reported to the Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday last week.
PC Nick Currie, neighbourhood specialist officer for Colnbrook with Poyle, said: “Speeding is what the residents of Colnbrook have set as a priority and we will continue to carry out enforcement operations throughout the neighbourhood.
“We have seen some people speeding at 53 and 56 mph in a residential 30 mph zone. We will not tolerate this kind of driving and will deal with offenders accordingly by sending them straight to court.”
PC Martin Hegg, neighbourhood specialist officer for Poyle, added: “I would like to remind drivers using the Poyle and Galleymead industrial estates that they are not to drive through High Street, Colnbrook as a short cut.
“The correct route towards Slough is to use the Horton Road and avoid the village altogether.
“We will continue to monitor HGV, LGV and business vehicles using the High Street and take action against those people who contravene the access prohibition.”
