Drivers asked to 'reduce your speed - please'
Drivers in West Berkshire are being warned about their speed through a Community Speedwatch scheme.
The initiative, from West Berkshire Council’s road safety team and Thames Valley Police, is a warning designed to raise awareness of a community concern.
In three operations on West Berkshire roads, 234 vehicles were recorded having exceeded the 30mph speed limit and the highest speed registered was 57mph.
The postcode data collected indicates that more than 70% of the vehicle owner’s don’t live in West Berkshire.
Cheryl Evans, senior RSO, said: “The real power is with the community. YOU have the power to keep your village feeling safe, by slowing down to an appropriate speed and therefore slowing down anyone behind you; working in partnership at its best.”
