The most recent information from the Community Speed Watch Team is –
We did a Community Speed Watch in your area today (09/06/21) and here are the details.
Picktree Village (farm cottages ) 50 Vehicles passed…32 were 30 mph or less..13 were between 31 and 34 mph..5 were over 35 mph
This did not show speeding here, a problem is that a vehicle is parked to prevent speeding by a resident so it works but means we cannot prove speeding. Another resident told us about the vehicle parked.
We then did North Road 50 Vehicles passed..29 were 30 mph or less…13 were between 31 and 34 mph..8 were over 35 mph this shows speeding is an issue and will be passed forward for more action.
