Speed cameras deployed on busy coast route ahead of ‘influx of bikers’

Mobile speed camera vans are to be deployed across a busy route in southwest Scotland[1] on Thursday ahead of an influx of bikers.

Police Scotland said that they expect heavy traffic on the A75 and A77 in Dumfries and Galloway ahead of the North West 200 even in Northern Ireland.

The North West 200 is the largest annual sporting event in Northern Ireland, with the race weekend attracting over 150,000 visitors from all over the world[2].

The celebration of biking will see many motorcyclists travelling through the West of Scotland, enroute to the ferry terminal at Cairnryan.

To help ensure the safe movement of traffic, Police Scotland will be increasing patrols along the A75 and A77.
