Warning: This is where mobile speed cameras will be sited in May

Drivers are being alerted to the location of mobile speed cameras throughout Gloucestershire in May.

The sites have been revealed by the county's Road Safety Mobile Camera Enforcement Unit which is committed to reducing risks to road users caused by vehicles travelling at excessive speeds.

The mobile speed detection vans operate at over 80 sites across the county and prioritise site activity by examining speed and accident data including intelligence received from communities.

In an effort to reduce speeding in areas across the county, the priority sites are advertised each month. Visits to the other sites will continue but emphasis will be placed on the advertised locations
