Driver caught doing 106mph in Enfield

By Adrian Colley in Crime

A TON-UP driver who roared through Enfield was speeding at 106mph, police say.

The motorist was caught in a clampdown by Enfield Police which netted 25 speeding drivers after officers staked out the northern stretch of the A10.

News of the crackdown was welcomed by social media users as they learned the details.

Police and Enfield Council are aware that drivers speeding through the borough causes concern to our residents and contributes to collisions and injuries.

The covert speed check operations on Friday, January 20, by officers from Southbury ward were concentrated on the A10 after speed cameras were removed last year.

Police say they processed 25 drivers for speeding and one was found to be driving 106mph. The Enfield Advertiser has asked police for further details on the incident.

Facebook posters on the Enfield police page welcomed the action.

John Salmon said: “Thank you. Local residents have been complaining about this for at least 5 years. It’s good to know something is finally being done. There are many local residents on the BHP/Edmonton StreetLife forum who will be pleased to hear this.

Jane Telfer said: “Thank you! This resident is very grateful. The noise from speeding and anti-social driving behaviour keeps me awake night after night.”

And Cara Bolton posted: “This is great news. I hope more speed checks are done after 10pm when the real speedsters get the run of the road.”

Borough commander Iain Raphael says he is in consultation with Transport for London to have permanent speed cameras which were removed from the A10 last year put back in place.

Enfield Police said: “We will continue these covert checks to keep our residents safe and prevent accidents by speeding motorists.”
