The Northern Echo

NORTH YORKSHIRE, U.K. — The public will get the opportunity to quiz police in North Yorkshire about their mobile safety cameras next week.

Team manager Dave Brown together with Traffic Constable Andy Forth, will host a live web-chat on May 15 between 6pm and 7pm.

Last month the North Yorkshire force introduced three mobile safety cameras following a 20-month pilot scheme.

The pilot was introduced on specific roads to help address the problem of motorcyclist fatalities, killed and seriously injured collisions and other routes where it had been found that speeding was a problem.

During the pilot, more than 26,000 motorists were caught speeding, including a minority driving or riding at extremely dangerous speeds and performing dangerous manoeuvres.

Mr Brown said: "This is a chance for members of the public to ask questions and find out anything they want to know about the cameras, how they are operated, why we use them and what happens once you've been caught speeding."

The public can take part in the web-chat by logging onto northyorkshire.police.uk/webchat
