The database was introduced as part of the Blue Badge Scheme and contains information on all blue badges issued in Scotland together with the terms or conditions placed upon the badge. By having access to the database, officers will be able to access information quickly if they believe that a badge is being misused.
Speeding remains a real community concern and a priority for officers in Falkirk. Officers have been out for the last few months deploying to areas of local concern, addressing speeding issues and where appropriate educating drivers on the dangers of speed. Falkirk remains a safe place with many drivers adhering to the limits but their remains a minority who continue to drive too quickly both for stated speed limits but also road conditions and driver ability. Officers will continue to carry out enforcement, reduced speed saves lives and keep our streets safer for all.
