Alongside parking, speeding is one of the most common complaints around here, so I was pleased to see the police are considering starting a Community Speedwatch scheme in Cambridge and gauging the level of interest. Sergeant Ian Wood has just put out a recruitment email on e-cops and invited us to spread the word – so here you are. Ian writes:
‘These schemes have been hailed a great success in other areas of the county (and nationally), and helps local residents feel more empowered to address road safety in their neighbourhood. We will provide volunteers with full training and equipment, as well as ongoing support and site surveys – all we require from you is your time.‘
There’s more information on the police website (www.cambs.police.uk/roadsafety/speedwatch ), and further enquiries can be addressed to [email protected] . Please feel free to pass on the message to friends, neighbours and colleagues who may have an interest in Cambridge Speedwatch.
