Hawksworth drivers caught speeding on narrow primary school road
Police have caught a number of drivers speeding on a narrow road with a primary school on in north west Leeds.
Officers patrolled Main Street in Hawksworth on Tuesday after residents had raised concerns about speeding and the use of HGVs on the street.
They found a 'handful' of drivers speeding - with the highest speed to be 30mph on the 20mph road.
C of E Primary School is located on the 'very' narrow Main Street, which is the reason for the low speed limit.
Police pleaded with the public to abide by the speed limit at all times, 'especially' on a road like this one.
North west Leeds officers revealed what had happened on social media: "Officers have been monitoring traffic in Hawksworth today, in response to residents' concerns regarding speeding & also the use of HGVs on the narrow main street.
"Unfortunately a handful of drivers were seen to be speeding, with the highest recorded being 30mph.
"Main street is a 20mph zone because it is very narrow & there is a primary school on it.
"Please abide by the speed limits at all times, especially on a road like Main Street."
