Residents in Yelvertoft are worried about speeding vehicles. With your support the Parish Council wants to continue with Community Speedwatch to tackle this danger.
Volunteers can be properly trained to use the calibrated speed gun, as used by police forces. We can’t fine motorists we find speeding but they will get a warning letter from the police as a reminder, and if necessary a visit from the police.
We will also get signs reminding people to slow down and interactive devices that will display the speed of a vehicle for drivers to see. All of this is designed to educate and make drivers aware of speeding in our community.
Evidence collected from Speedwatch can be used by the Parish Council in any discussions with the County Council over possible traffic calming methods.
We need your help
We need adult volunteers to help with Yelvertoft Community Speedwatch if we are to continue so we are asking for your help.
If you are interested then contact the Clerk and register your interest at firstname.lastname@example.org
The next training day is 15th June 2019.
