This was a joint effort between the police, the City Council 20mph implementation team and KEW resident Fran Elder who is Birmingham 20’s Plenty for Us Coordinator.
The police used speed measuring devices to spot and select some cars travelling over the speed limit. The cars were diverted into King Edwards Drive and the drivers made aware of the new limits, the reason for them and that enforcement had commenced today. Being a driver awareness event, no fines were issued.
Local Councillor Kath Hartley and some local residents turned up for the event and for their support they were rewarded with 20mph cup cakes.
Below is a gallery of photos I took of the event.
