SPEED checks will be carried out at several locations across East Lancashire.

Officers inside camera enforcement vehicles will be out on the road today, Sunday, carrying out checks in Pendle, Blackburn with Darwen and Hyndburn, with drivers urged to keep their speed down and to stay safe.

Each month the Lancashire Road Safety Partnership releases a list of locations where checks will be carried out in a bid to clamp down on dangerous driving.

The aim of the partnership is to improve driver behaviour by helping motorists to drive at an appropriate and safe speed within designated limits.

Cameras use highly accurate laser technology to detect speeding motorists but they are also used to identify other offences, including drivers not in proper control or not wearing a seat belt.

A spokesman said: “All mobile sites are risk assessed for safety and we vary how often we attend different locations with sites based on casualty data, known speeding concerns, where a report has been made directly by a member of the public concerned about speeding issues in their area along with any location that has a fixed roadside camera.

“To raise awareness of our mobile sites please note the list of locations below that we aim to visit during October 2021; please remember our safety camera enforcement vehicles can visit any of our sites at any time and for operational reasons the list is subject to change.”
