This is why there are more vehicle safety cameras in Harrogate today
If you've spotted more safety camera vehicles than usual around Harrogate today, North Yorkshire Police has revealed the reason why.
According to a tweet from the North Yorkshire Police Traffic Bureau, drivers can expect to see more safety camera vehicles in the area as part of a planned operation to maximise visibility on Harrogate's roads.
The operation is called #OpVis and ensures that the vehicles can target a wider range of roads and communities.
The aim is to impact on driver behaviour and encourage them to drive in a more safe and cautious manner.
Safety cameras not only measure speed but can also monitor offences such as not wearing a seatbelt, using a mobile phone and more.
