A speeding operation took place in South Marston between 8am and 10am on 11th March 2011 in conjunction with the pupils from South Marston Primary School. The children have been working on a project in relation to speeding and were given the opportunity to use the camera and also pose questions to some motorists who were stopped for speeding and who would normally have received a verbal warning.
During the operation, one fixed penalty ticket was issued which will result in a fine and three points, a second person was reported to summons to court due to excessive speed and accumulation of driving points.
Pc Jackson said the operation was a great way for the community to become involved in an issue affecting the village. He was pleased to see how much the children enjoyed themselves and he said it was interesting that the drivers the children spoke to were residents of South Marston village.
