Gloucestershire village speed camera catches 1,000 drivers daily

A speed camera in a village in Gloucestershire has caught more than 28,000 motorists driving fast enough to be prosecuted in less than four weeks.

An automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) camera was put up on 19 February by the community in Rodborough, near Stroud, to try to slow down drivers.

Since then 277,000 motorists have driven past the camera, which transmits data in real time.

Over 97,277 exceeded the 30 mph limit, while 28,234 drove at over 35 mph.

The camera allows police to identify speeding drivers in real time.

Letters are sent to motorists warning them they could be prosecuted if they continue to drive too fast.
