South Yorkshire Safer Roads Partnership
Enforcing road traffic legislation, focusing efforts on priority routes and areas and targeting those at most risk of causing harm to themselves and others. 

Supporting the Police and South Yorkshire Safety Cameras (SYSC) in their enforcement role we plan to:

  • Introduce a formalised Memorandum of Agreement between SYSC and the local authorities in relation to roles and responsibilities of each partner and financial contributions to be made by the local authorities
  • In line with the Safety Cameras Operational Plan, undertake camera enforcement, including red light and speed contraventions, using fixed and mobile devices
  • Undertake an annual review of potential new and existing camera locations to ensure that a 'worst first' approach to site selection continues to be employed
  • Undertake more in-depth analysis of data relating to those who are caught using camera enforcement to inform education, training and publicity activity in a bid to bring about behaviour change
  • Increase enforcement around the 'fatal four' (drink/drug driving, speeding, not wearing a seatbelt and using a mobile phone), in particular drink and drug driving, mobile phone use whilst driving and not wearing a seat belt as part of Operation Illuminate
  • Consider best practice from elsewhere and implement new initiatives where the research shows this will have a beneficial impact on our Policing objectives e.g. the introduction of a Community Speed Watch programme to be implemented via the local policing teams in conjunction with their communities
