Excessive speed is among the most common factors when people are killed or seriously injured in crashes, with West Yorkshire Police naming it among the ‘fatal four’ causes of deaths on the road. Earlier this year, the force announced a crackdown on speeding drivers.
West Yorkshire Safety Camera Partnerships lists all the potential locations of mobile speed cameras in Leeds on its website. The list is broken down into roads with 30 mph, 40 mph and 50 mph speed limits.
Included in the list is the highly publicised East Leeds Orbital Route (ELOR) which reopened last summer and Stanningley Road. The following 24 locations for this week are accurate at the time of publication, but are subject to alteration.
