Ten speeders stopped

SHETLAND police are warning drivers to take their foot off the gas after 10 were stopped for speeding during a day of action on Wednesday.

Three drivers were caught travelling at more than 30mph outside schools with a 20mph speed limit, one reaching 35mph outside Whiteness school.

Another was clocked at 74mph in a 60mph zone near Scalloway, and a further driver was going at 43mph in Brae, which has a 30mph limit.

Chief inspector Angus MacInnes was highly critical of local drivers after the nation-wide campaign.

“These detections reflect poorly on these drivers. Speeding outside schools is inexcusable, highly irresponsible and could result in a child being seriously injured or worse,” he said.

“We will continue to target speeding drivers and ask members of the public to reduce their speed, particularly around primary schools.”
