Making South Yorkshire Safer

Driver dismissed by company after parking behind a speed enforcement vehicle.

Jul 12 2016


On the 9th July 2016, a Mercedes Luton van parked directly behind an enforcement vehicle on Edlington Lane, Doncaster.

Once parked, the driver and passenger alighted the vehicle and proceeded to take photographs / record their actions.

Noting the company details from the vehicles livery and the vehicles registration, South Yorkshire Police brought this action to the attention of the Company Director.

After conducting their own enquiries, the driver of the van was subsequently dismissed from the company.

All of our speed enforcement is carried out on routes that have a history of casualties brought about from traffic collisions. By obstructing our officers, you are potentially risking the lives of vulnerable road users.
