Police using a horse trailer to catch speeding motorists

Police Officers in North Wales UK are using a horsebox parked by the side of the road to hide a speed camera. The horse trailer with 2 officers inside was parked near Llanrwst in the Conwy Valley last Sunday.
The Police, renowned for its campaign against speeding would not comment on its use but said enforcement activity would increase as the days lengthen. The Department of Transport said it recommended speed cameras were made "highly visible" to motorists. Sunday's deployment saw the horse trailer parked on a straight stretch of the A470 at Maenan near Llanrwst.
The road has a 60mph limit but is renowned for speeding. The chief constable of North Wales Police, Richard Brunstrom has previously admitted an "obsession" with tackling speeding motorists.
Last year speed cameras in north Wales caught 55,704 offenders. Another 5,610 were caught by officers with hand-held laser devices.
