Herts police issued three traffic offence reports to drivers on Tuesday, May 23.

Officers from the Safer Neighbourhood Team were in Herns Lane in Panshanger, to find drivers breaking the speed limit of 30mph.

A number of drivers were given words of advice, and a further three were issued with traffic offence reports. 

Those three drivers now face a potential fine, diversionary course, or prosecution.

PC Anne Lopez, from the Welwyn Hatfield Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “Speed limits exist for good reason and motorists should think carefully before choosing to ignore the limit.

"Do you want to be the person who causes a car crash? Speeding is one of the leading causes of road deaths and when residents report concerns about speeding, we take it seriously.

"I hope the public feel reassured by today’s operation. We are here and are always listening.”
