Local residents take action against dangerous speeding cars

by Ruth, Marlene, and Steve on 5 January, 2018

Residents in Collingwood Road supported by the police and your local  ward councillors were out on the Friday night before Christmas as part of Community Speedwatch.

Everyone was trained to use speed detection devices.  During just one hour they identified 21 cars which were exceeding the 20 mph speed limit in Collingwood Road.  The police will be writing to the owners of the cars to warn them of their excessive speed and fining some of them.

The presence of Speedwatch teams on the street deters motorists from driving at speed, and the follow up letters and fines make it clear that this is dangerous.  Steve, Marlene and Ruth will be organising further Speedwatch events with the police in the ward.  If you would like to be part of this, please let us know.
