Michael Fabricant visited Milestone Way to see for himself the way some motorists are not obeying the speed limit.

The Conservative MP said: “I clocked one car travelling at 54mph along Milestone Way which has a 30mph limit.

“They will now be reported to Staffordshire Police. I hope it wasn’t one of my constituents.”

Mr Fabricant joined Cllr Janet Taylor and Cllr Dave King and PCSO Tom Passmore.

“Janet told me that there is frequent speeding along Milestone Way in Burntwood as well as in Hospital Road and other streets in Hammerwich,” he said.

“These self-help speeding initiatives run in conjunction with the police help educate drivers to keep their speeds down. This can save lives.

“I congratulate these teams and I was delighted to be invited to see the work they do across the county. 

“As an added bonus, our speed detection work was accompanied by loud explosions as the army detonated second world war mortars located on the building site opposite Morrisons.”
