More than 100 motorists caught speeding on busy Coven road

More than 100 motorists were caught ignoring the speed limit on a busy road near Wolverhampton.

Officers from Staffordshire Police’s Road Policing Unit monitored the speed of motorists travelling along the A449 near Coven on Sunday.

During a two-hour operation, officers observed the stretch of road, which is covered by a 40mph limit, and caught 105 drivers speeding. The highest speed recorded was 71mph.

PC Jim Hunt, from the force’s road policing unit, said: “It was disappointing to see so many people ignoring the speed limit.

“Those who did can expect details through the post of how the offence will be dealt with.

“Speed remains a major factor in road traffic collisions and by holding operations such as this, we want to raise awareness that limits are in place for a reason.”
