Parish Council launches speed check awareness campaign

Parish Council launches speed check awareness campaign

Parish Councillors have launched a campaign calling on drivers to check their speed as they travel through the village.

Cllr Barry Walker, chairman of the Council's Traffic Issues Working Party, said: "During lockdown in late spring our roads became much emptier with the reduction in road traffic. Over the summer, traffic has returned and we have seen speeds rise.

"At the same time, we are encouraging people to walk and cycle more.

"There is clear evidence that even a slight increase in speed can reduce the chance of somebody surviving a car collision.

"Please help us prevent a tragedy on our congested streets. Please play your part and Check Your Speed."
