Speed trap locations

A MOBILE police speed camera will be patrolling a new road in Scarborough from tomorrow.

The van will be monitoring motorists on the B1427, known as Queen Margaret’s Road, for a seven-day period.

Police said the hi-tech van will also be patrolling the A64 between York and Malton, Castle Road in Whitby and at other locations throughout North Yorkshire.

The mobile speed camera has been introduced by police in an effort to cut deaths on the region’s roads.

In its first week of operation, between July 1 and July 7, 418 speeding motorists were detected by the camera.

Among these was a driver travelling at 112mph, one at 100mph three at more than 96mph and one at 62mph in a 30mph zone.

Six motorists caught in the week have been summoned to court.

Other drivers have been fined or had points added to their licences.
