Edinburgh police enforce new speed checks following reports from community
Police have been tracking the speed of drivers in Bonnington.
Edinburgh police have been cracking down on speeding using hand-held cameras in Bonnington this weekend.
It comes after reports that officers have stopped around 200 cars in the capital in the last week.
Three drivers have been reported for speeding offences during last week’s speed checks, which were prompted by “local community concerns.”
The speed checks this weekend, on Clifton Road in Bonnington, were also in response to “concerns raised by the community”, police said.
It is not yet clear how many cars were stopped in the latest operation.
