Bramshall Speed Watch – update information and Volunteer appeal

The Speed Watch Team in Bramshall have just celebrate their second anniversary of existence and have provided the Parish Council with the information below:

“As we reach our second anniversary of the commencement of Speedwatch activities in the Village of Bramshall (started on 23.03.2017) the small team of volunteers agree that there has been a noticeable improvement in the standard of driving by most road users in the Village.
There remain just a few individuals who continue to threaten the safety of our roads by driving too fast but hopefully, in time, the roads will become a safer environment for everyone.

In these past two years the volunteers have noted a reduction in the number of speeding offences, this is obvious from the information collected from the regular road speed monitoring sessions.

One change that has happened recently was the fitting of the new permanent warning signs at four sites on the fringes of the village: Stone Road (2), Bennetts Lane (1) and Leigh Lane (1), to alert drivers they are entering a “community speedwatch area”. These metal signs replace the old, plastic, temporary ones that were used hitherto. Monitoring of the various sites will, it is hoped, further continue to reduce the level of speeding offences.

As mentioned, Speedwatch, in the village is undertaken by a small group of volunteers who make themselves available for a couple of hours each month. It is sometimes not possible to find enough volunteers and we are therefore seeking a few more individuals to join the team. So why not join us?

If you are interested in becoming a “Community Speed watcher” in Bramshall, please contact Michelle Shaker, the Community Engagement Co-ordinator at Police HQ in Stafford on 01785 232702, who will be pleased to discuss how to join the team.

Thank you
Andrew Dartnell – Bramshall Speedwatch
