Police will issue warning letters to 44 drivers seen speeding on both Pudsey Road and Troydale Lane in Pudsey following a special road safety operation.

Officers from Pudsey Neighbourhood Policing Team have deployed “Smiley SID” as part of a special operation on Pudsey’s roads. Smiley SID displays the current speed of a vehicle passing and either shows a smiley face if the speed is at or below the speed limit, or it shows a sad face if the vehicle speed is over the limit.
