Written by centralfmnews on September 13, 2021
A new speed camera is being set up in Reddingmuirhead from today – after worries from residents about drivers in the area.
Police Scotland say there have been a “concerning” number of drivers exceeding the 30mph limit.
The camera is in place on Shieldhill Road.
East Safety Camera Unit Manager Michael Grant said: “Flexible deployments allow Safety Cameras Scotland to work in partnership with Police Scotland and local authorities to address concerns in areas that have a high footfall where there is an evidenced issue with speed. Speed surveys at this location have shown that there are concerning numbers of drivers exceeding the 30mph limit and this deployment should be a reminder of the importance of adhering to the speed limit in built up areas”.
Braes and Bo’ness Community Sergeant Graeme Fox “The local community has raised concerns about the speed of vehicles travelling in both directions on B810, Shieldhill Road, Reddingmuirhead, which is close to Braes High School and the local community centre. I am delighted the East Safety Camera Unit are able to support us and the local community to improve public safety on this route”.
