Stand out deployments to begin on A7, Hillside Terrace, Selkirk

30mph speed limit sign

The East Safety Camera Unit will be commencing deployments on the A7, Hillside Terrace, Selkirk, on Monday 13th May, concluding on Tuesday 2nd July. Enforcement will take place sporadically from 0800 to 0900 and 1500 to 1600 from Monday to Friday in order to encourage drivers to adhere to the 30mph speed limit.

Andy Jones East Camera Safety Unit Manager “the Scottish Borders Road Safety Board has expressed concerns about the risk posed to vulnerable road users on this route to Selkirk High School. The failure of drivers to follow the 30mph speed limit increases the likelihood of a collision. Injuries will also be more severe if motorists are travelling above the speed limit”.

Police Scotland Chief Inspector Stuart Reid “motorists should keep to the speed limits at all times and this is particularly important near schools. We are pleased to be working with our colleagues at the East Safety Camera Unit to ensure that motorists comply with the 30mph speed limit. We will monitor offences at this site and if required, adopt an appropriate enforcement program”.
