Police And Neighbours Join Forces To Improve Road Safety

Neighbours and police in Cedar Road and Christchurch were joined by Sutton South Councillor, Tony Shields, during a speed watch operation last week after concerns about the speed of traffic in the area.

 

The group took part whilst equipped with a speed gun in which they were trained how to use, on the look out for anyone committing a recognisable motoring offence.

 

They found out most culprits were actually from the surrounding area.

 

Several drivers in the area were spotted travelling at 30ph on Cedar Road even though the speed limit was 20mph.

 

However, no drivers were spotted not wearing a seatbelt or talking on their phones.

 

Although the speeding drivers were not prosecuted, they are expected to receive letters telling them that they were noticed.

 

PC Mark Towler said: “It appeared that many of the speeding drivers were local residents. All residents need to be aware that other roads in this area like Langley Park Road and Cavendish Road also have 20mph restrictions.”

 

Sergeant Geraldine Costello said more signs will be installed in the area, to make sure people know the limit and don’t forget about it, either.
