Caravan and Motorhome owners are being encouraged to have their outfits checked as part of an initiative organised by the North Wales Police Special Constabulary Road Safety Unit today.

Led by Specials Chief Inspector Andy Moore the initiative will be held at the DVSA weighbridge in Ewloe and will involve officers from the Roads Safety Unit as well as the Roads Policing Unit.

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.

The unit has 7 current members from the Force’s Special Constabulary, with plans to expand.
