A road believed to be used by speeding motorists during the school run is being monitored by police.

Due to a high level of complaints from residents in Drysdale Avenue, Chingford, officers from Chingford Green Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) carried out a speed-gun operation.

PC Darren Brand and Police Community Support Officer Shaz Majid stopped a dozen vehicles during the operation on Sunday.

No drivers were issued fines or points during the operation, but several motorists received warnings.

Chingford Green SNT has confirmed it will be carrying regular checks, using speed guns, to make people adhere to the speed limit in the area.

Could they also do something about parents that ignore parking restrictions that are there for the safety of their own children to save themselves 5 minutes when dropping them off? I live near a school and see some scandalous 'parking' sometimes.

The closest Darren will get to being in the Armed Response Unit. Nice shades.

They believe speeding is taking place during school runs? Go prove it and deal with it.

First speeding offence £500 and three points.

Second speeding offence £1000 and three points and so on in £500 increments.

Why are the police issuing warnings? Why not fine these selfish, anti-social cretins who put other road users at risk cos they overslept?
