Man fed up with speeding motorists buys Police camera van off eBay and parks it outside home

Crafty resident takes action in a bid to increase safety

A RESIDENT fed up with motorists speeding past his suburban house has bought a defunct Police speed camera van off eBay and parked it outside his home in a bid to make the area safer.

Kerry Donnelly claims road users regularly ignored the 30mph speed limit outside his home in Canton, Cardiff, fearing speeding road users could cause a serious accident.

Mr Donnelly was so concerned by the situation he bought a defunct South Wales camera van for £1,500 from eBay auction website, before parking it outside his house.

Mr Donnelly now claims his purchase has significantly reduced the number of speeders driving past his home.

A South Wales Police spokesman has confirmed Mr Donnelly is not breaking any laws.
