Chalons Way in Ilkeston is among roads which will be targeted by police in a crackdown on speeding.

Following an agreement with Derbyshire Road Safety Partnership, Derbyshire police will focus their efforts to detect speeding on more than 100 routes in the county where people face a higher risk of being killed or hurt as a result of motorists travelling too fast.

The new speeding action plan has been drawn up following a detailed review of casualty figures and speed data.

As a result, motorists can expect to find police speed enforcement officers in many new locations such as Greenwood Avenue.
