Speed Checks in Mixenden Have a Positive Response

In a joint operation with the Mixenden Initiative, police speed enforcement officers PC Chris Newton and PC Troy Johnson were on Clough Lane in Mixenden on Tuesday 28 August with the police speed laser gun.

The operation came about as a result of complaints from residents about cars speeding on Clough Lane, Mixenden.

PC’s Newton and Johnson were happy to report that the majority of drivers were driving within the designated speed limit on that road, which is 20mph.


Further joint operations of this kind are planned for the near future in Mixenden and the surrounding areas of North Halifax.
