VOLUNTEERS recorded more than 30 speeding drivers in Flintshire during a national road safety campaign.

The Leader reported recently how the Buckley Community Speedwatch group was planning to be out and about as part of Brake charity's Road Safety Week 2020, which took place from November 16 to 22.

The group's coordinator Cllr Arnold Woolley said during three roadside hours at a number of locations, the team recorded 32 speeders - one of which was going almost double the 30 mile her hour speed limit near two schools.

He said: "30 of the drivers recorded will have letters from GoSafe telling them that if they had been caught by their van, it would have cost them pounds out of their pocket and points on their license.

"During the week we covered Precinct Way by Aldi, Jubilee Road by the sheltered accommodation at Jubilee Court and Wylfa Hill.

"We also covered Bryn y Baal where the road goes over the A494 flyover because we have Argoed school and a junior school near there.

"At that location, which is 30 miles per hour, we had someone doing 57 and another doing 48. "During school going in and out times, you have kids walking along there and they will play, give each other a push and step out into the road. "If drivers don't take care it could be very easy to have a tragedy if we have some idiot whizzing along at 57."
