20mph violations in South Wales recorded, but action not yet taken

The Chief Constable of South Wales Police has confirmed that the force is still “working through the details” of its enforcement strategy.

The limit across most residential roads was reduced to 20mph in September last year, and Chief Constable Jeremy Vaughan has told ITV News the force has been “recording data but not taking enforcement action”.

But he added, there would be a different approach to speeding motorists this year.

“Our job is to take enforcement action where we have to and where necessary to do that,” he told the TV channel. “So in some circumstances, people will see that into 2024 we’re going to try to do so, in the most appropriate way.”

It adds that when he was pressed on the speed at which motorists would receive a penalty, he said: “For the rest of the road traffic legislation, it tends to be 10% plus 2.

“But of course, we’re still working through the details of that because the 20s are newer legislation,” he added.
