Managed motorway enforcement

With the development of 'Smart Motorways' through our region we are now working in partnership with Highways England to enforce the speed along sections of the M42 and M5 motorway.

Speed enforcement is in place to ensure traffic is moving smoothly through the region. Variable speed limits may be in place throughout the day and if not signed otherwise the national speed limit will apply.  In cases where a variable speed limit is in place a speed limit inside a red circle will be displayed on overhead gantries and is legally enforceable. These limits can be changed at certain times to help manage the traffic flow.
