Additional speed cameras are to be deployed in the Fife village of Gateside in a bid to encourage drivers to slow down.

Andy Jones, Fife Safety Camera Partnership manager, said: “Deployment at the village, originally in response to community concerns, has continued for years now and speeding offences at the site are still being detected regularly.

“It’s a 30mph restriction in the village and particularly worrying that drivers are speeding through it while the 20mph restriction is in place around school times.

“Our presence in the village is being increased in a bid to encourage drivers to slow down.

“Speeding is a high risk driving behaviour and unfortunately enforcement, leading to a loss of licence, may be the only way to change the behaviour of some drivers.”

Inspector Nicola Black, Police Scotland, added: “The local community identified driver behaviour and speeding as one of their top priorities for local officers to focus on in North East Fife.

“I am particularly concerned that most speeding offences detected are associated to local people.

Please stick to the limit set – it’s there to help preserve the safety of all who use the road – pedestrians, cyclists, motorcyclists, drivers.”
