Speeding cars and anti-social driving continue to be a problem on some streets in Whalley Range and Chorlton. Councillor Angeliki Stogia has been talking to local community organisations about setting up a Community Speedwatch scheme. This is a new initiative where active members of the community join together with the support of the police to monitor the speed of vehicles using detection devices.
Angeliki says “We have a number of people already interested, but we’re keen to hear from more of you who want to help tackle this problem and take a stand against inconsiderate drivers in our neighbourhood.”
- Improve the quality of life for Whalley Range and Chorlton communities
- Increase public awareness of inappropriate speed
- Reduce the speed of vehicles to the speed limit
- Reduce the risk of injury on the roads
Speed Watch activity is not about interfering with neighbours’ behaviour; it is a proactive solution to improve the safety and quality of life for everyone in the community.
