People In Riccall Get Chance To See Speed Camera Van Up-Close
6:01am 19th June 2013
People are being invited to a public meeting in Riccall where they have the opportunity to look around one of North Yorkshire Police’s new Mobile Safety Camera vans.
The Eastern Area Community Engagement Forum is due to be held in the Riccall Regen Centre between 6.30pm and 7.30pm today (19 June 2013).
Representatives from various agencies including the police, fire and rescue and local councils will be in attendance to discuss issues relating to highways and transport.
Members of the public are invited to attend to give their views and feedback to officers. They can also have a close look at a new hi-tech Mobile Safety Camera van and speak to its operator, say North Yorkshire Police.
Inspector Richard Abbott, of the Selby Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “We are really keen for local residents to gain a better understanding of the Mobile Safety Camera vans, and to dispel any myths that they are just an easy way of generating money for the Treasury and the force.
“In reality, they are there to improve road safety and prevent the heartache and misery associated with serious and fatal road traffic collisions.
“Please come along and take a look at the van for yourself, it is a very impressive piece of kit. We look forward to speaking to residents and taking onboard any feedback.”
