Community Speedwatch - 2011
Speeding was identified as a major concern and a number of roads were selected for a ‘Speed Watch’ exercise. The roads selected were:
► Wensley Road ► Lesford Road
► Coley Avenue ► Holybrook Road
The NAG members and Thames Valley Police (TVP) check the speeds of passing cars with a handheld speedgun. Where the speed limit is exceeded educational information will be sent to the offender. TVP will consider further action for serial speeders.
Three Community Speedwatch events have taken place in Coley during November 2010 involving the NAG; 9 letters have been issued to offenders. Another session took place on 4th February 2011where one person was caught on their mobile phone.
