Using the words of Lord Kitchener, Standlake needs you!

Speeding is a major issue in Standlake.  Not only on the main A415 Abingdon Road, but also Rack End, Downs Road including the school and church, High Street and Aston Road.  Recent monitoring activity has observed many drivers in excess of 40mph when the limit is 30mph.  Contact has already been made with Standlake School and Pulhams Coaches regarding the issue.  The Parish Council has invested in a mobile monitoring unit and, with funding by a resident, a speed gun.  A meeting has also been held with Thames Valley Police who are now in a position to send warning letters to reported offenders. 

What we now need is a team of volunteers to use the equipment and record information.  Training will be provided along with high-viz jackets!  A co-ordinator is also required so it is known what teams are operating where and when and liaise with the Chair of the Standlake Speeding & Traffic Sub-Committee of the Parish Council.

If you can give up some time to help please email
speedwatch@standlakepc.org.uk with your contact details and we will be in touch.  If you can help as the co-ordinator that would be great and please let us know!
