Geraint Jones

A CRACK down on has been launched on speeding drivers in a village near Caernarfon.

North Wales Police will carry out checks and, if necessary, prosecute motorists after complaints from Dolydd residents.

PCSO Julie Holland said police a surgery in nearby Groeslon drew numerous reports of speeding motorists in Dolydd, particularly between 7.30am and 9.00am.

She added: “Some motorists have already been prosecuted for speeding in this area, and it was hoped the initial police presence would have acted as a deterrent to others, but unfortunately this anti social and dangerous type of driving continues.

“I would like to get a clear message out to those motorists to cut there speed or face the consequences.”

Councillor Eric Jones, who represents the area on Gwynedd Council, backed the police’s stance.

He said: “I fully support North Wales Police on this matter and speeding will not be tolerated in the villages of Groeslon and Dolydd.”

Anyone with concerns about dangerous or speeding drivers in their area should contact North Wales Police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
