OSCOTT'S COMMUNITY SPEED WATCH TEAM IN ACTION ON KINGSTANDING ROAD
It was good to see the Oscott Community Speed Watch team at work on the Kingstanding Road today. (Near Cooksey Lane).
In just over 2 and a half hours
146 speeders were spotted
Top speed 60mph
6 x speeders over 50mph
Average speed 41.89mph
The Police informed me they found these results quite appalling in such a short space of time, the speeds for a 30mph road were disgraceful with most vehicles travelling over 40mph. All drivers will be identified and warning letters sent out. Due to these results.
The Volunteers who are the Oscott Community Speed Watch are doing their bit along with Local C.S Officers and I am now putting pressure on the Transportation department to do theirs.
KING STANDING ROAD IS 30mph and I am continuing to call upon the Transportation department to improve the signage on this road to show that.
