A353 is Littlemoor Road - Preston Road is the B3155. Unmarked police cars also operate on the A353.
As said above, these have very, very little to do with road safety. Now if they pulled over some of the tail-gaters on Littlemoor and other roads, together with those who persist in using fog-lights in broad daylight, they might make a difference but that might involve decision making instead of sitting waiting for the machines to do the work.

Maybe it might be an idea for them too concentrate on pulling over all the HGV's that continually break speed limits in national speed limit areas... where by law they are only allowed to go 40mph..... but very rarely are they going below 50mph.

I checked, got an email from Dorset Road Safe which said they have not supplied lists of camera locations to the Dorset Echo for several years (and does not have to do so). The Echo has been informed on several occasions that their list is not correct.

Usual standard of 'journalism' from the Echo which we have come to expect then?

There is a need for a police presence on the Weymouth to Dorchester racetrack called the Weymouth relief road, car's go so fast to get to the top of the hill it's so scary, and when you include the motor bikes over taking the overtaking car in the down hill lane you start to say your pray's.

Yes that silly island up near the vets on Dorchester Road isn't helping, especially as people are parking up near it causing unnecessary highway obstruction. That was a ridiculous decision.

Agree.

I have stopped using it and go the back way via Martinstown. Apart from the speeding there are the DANGEROUS drivers trying to straddle both lanes and those trying to stop vehicles from the second lane merging into the first when the road sign clearly says 'MERGE IN TURN'. A police presence and a few fines and points dished out to these idiots may well send out a message.

could not agree more, why the bus company has not complained, because it's an accident waiting to happen, because the buses have to get though a narrow lane with long line of car's parked on one side and have to face right of way traffic coming along the same narrow lane ( with the attitude l'm in the right get out of my way ) hence the buses and cars have no where to go which causes a conflict, l say get rid of the island open the road up to free flowing traffic and real shoppers can park their car out side the shop because the traffic flow would be spaced out, not like it is not. Even pedestrians can't cross the road at the island because they have to wait for a gap in the queuing traffic. OPEN the road up for all to benefit.

People are calling the road block in Upwey an island. It is not an island but just blocks off half the carriageway. The so-called planners in Dorchester seem to have this urge to block the free passage of vehicles.
In the same way, they moved the curb at the northbound bus stop at Overcombe Corner towards the centre of the road so that when a bus is taking on passengers, it is very difficult for other vehicles to safely pass the bus in the face of traffic coming in the other direction.
As for the collection of road obstacles and white paint at the junction of Dorchester and Littlemore road and the junction of Preston Beach Road and Preston Road which they call 'roundabouts', words fail me!

That road block, as you call it, is absolutely pointless. There are usually cars parked there anyway, so my default traffic has to slow down. All DCC have done is spend money to create, effectively, a concrete parked car.

We desperately need a speed camera/s on Rylands lane in Wyke Regis. The so called speed bumps are no more than pimples! and utterly a waste of money. This road has become a "rat run" with cars regularly going at unsafe speeds - there is going to be Fatal or serious incident here soon, if nothing is done.

No, it's a problem for everyone if they break the limit or not. When road safely policing is determined by profit, not safety, we all suffer increased risks and costs
