Specials C.I Andy Moore said:
This is an ideal opportunity for caravan owners to have their outfits checked and weighed prior to them being used over the summer season.
We are encouraging caravan and motorhome owners to bring their outfits along in order for us to check their condition and to ensure that they are the correct weight.
Officers will also be on hand to give advice regarding safer towing and how to keep your caravans secure. Tyres and mirrors will also be checked as part of the initiative.
Officers will be on site from between 10am – 4pm.
The Special Constabulary Road Safety Unit was launched in December 2016 and are based at the Roads Policing Unit in St Asaph.
