Charlbury Speedwatch update July 2018

Last Friday, 29th June, we monitored vehicles leaving Charlbury along the Enstone Road between 4.30 & 5.30pm. This was at the request of an allotment gardener who had almost been mown down by a speeding car the week before. You may not be surprised to hear that within an hour we recorded 36 cars well in excess of the speed limit, some travelling at 50 MPH by the time they were driving past the allotment gate. These will all be contacted by Thames Valley Police with a warning. Today we were on The Slade again recording a dozen speeding drivers well in excess of the 30 MPH speed limit, even with the 20 MPH advisory flashing for the school run. TVP were also out at Forest Rd today stopping speeders, this following our recent monitoring of those entering Charlbury towards the train station just along from the Day Nursery. We'll be keeping up this monitoring with TVP in the hope that drivers will get the idea that driving safely respects our town and makes the roads & pavements safer for all users.
