Speedwatch operations in Headingley and Weetwood

Alert message sent 10/03/2021 07:32:00

Information sent on behalf of West Yorkshire Police

On 09/03/2021 officers from North West inner Neighbourhood police Team deployed the speed gun on Ash Road in Headingley, after residents raised concerns about speeding. Only one vehicle was seen to be exceeding the 20mph limit, at 26mph.

Officers then re-visited Tinshill Lane, LS16, which has already been speed checked recently. Officers stopped 7 vehicles that were recorded doing from 38 – 41 MPH in a 30 MPH zone.

One moped, which failed to stop, was recorded at 65 MPH. Action will be taken to trace the driver & deal with them accordingly.

Reasons for exceeding the speed limit ranged from ‘’I’ve just picked my kids up’’ to ‘’is this only a 30?’’ - Road safety, knowing and doing the correct speed on roads could save lives.
