Charlbury Speedwatch update July 10th

The venue today was the Woodstock Rd, requested by a local resident concerned at the high speeds on this busy road and following a serious speed related incident that took out a telegraph pole. Today we reported 27 vehicles to TVP for follow up and all will soon be receiving warning letters. Once reported, vehicles are recorded on a national database and speeding offences anywhere else are added. Once three offences are reached, the Police Traffic Section visit the driver with the next step of a fine and action against the vehicle. We've been informed that 6 such visits have already occurred in the local area of Charlbury, The Wychwoods & Chipping Norton. The point of all this is for drivers to respect our town and its residents and we aim to keep up this activity and try to persuade the authorities to install more permanent passive and active traffic management.
