Stickers target speeding drivers
Speed warning stickers for wheelie bins have been handed out in a Cumbrian town to encourage drivers to slow down.
The move follows complaints by people living in Cockermouth that their roads were being used like ‘racetracks’.
In response, the police and fire service have given residents 30mph stickers for each side of their bins. On collection days, motorists using the roads will have to pass rows of the signs reminding them of the limit.
Pc Sue Wheelhouse, of Cockermouth neighbourhood policing team, said: "This initiative is in response to excessive speeding concerns by local residents, who are worried that it is only a matter of time before someone is killed or injured on their roads.
"It has not been tried in Cumbria before and we hope it will be eye-catching enough to encourage speeding drivers to slow down."
