SPEED cameras will soon be targeting motorists flouting the law on a busy main route in and out of Worcester.
Enforcement sites are being introduced at various points along the A44 between Worcester and Kington after villagers living along the route raised concerns over the number of speeding motorists.
The Safer Roads Partnership in West Mercia hope the measures will curb speeding along the whole stretch of the A44.
Cotheridge, Broadwas, Bredenbury and Kington are among the villages where speed cameras will be operating at various times.
Katy Jenkins, spokesman for the Safer Roads Partnership, said: “The ‘route approach’ we are taking to speed enforcement along the A44 is a forward looking initiative designed to encourage speed limit compliance along the entirety of the road.
"Motorists using excessive speed compromise the safety of other road users. The launch of enforcement activity will encourage motorists to adopt less risky and more considerate driving behaviours."
