“Every street needs to be tackled especially Kentmere Avenue, Old York Road. South Parkway especially at the top end and Kentmere Approach.”
Councillor David Jenkins – Killingbeck and Seacroft
“On Wednesday 24th July PCSO Taylor was on Asket Drive conducting speed checks with SID – which is a Speed Indication Device.
During PCSO Taylor’s time at the location, thirteen vehicles were monitored going above the 20 MPH speed limit.
Warning letters will be sent to those who breached this limit and the Data will be held – any following occurrences will result in legal action being taken against Offending Drivers.
Further locations in will be monitored over the coming weeks.
Thank you for all your recommendations, these will be passed to the Killingbeck and Seacroft Neighbourhood Policing Team to review and attend the streets repeatedly mentioned and where the call demand is. There is also mention of Police Officers said to be speeding in Seacroft. Please, can I suggest if you believe that they are speeding that you make a note of the Vehicle Registration and then make contact with the Police? All Police vehicles are fitted with a Device which monitors the speed of the Police vehicles and each Officer who drives a vehicle has to swipe their id card prior to driving. This device assists when complaints are received so it can be ascertained if an Officer was or wasn’t speeding and if they were or weren’t deployed to attend a call. I hope this information assists.”
