Speed watch / Traffic calming

Speed watch / Traffic calming

 

You will have noticed our local Speed Watch team in and around the village calming the traffic.

The main roads in and out of the village are relatively straight and this encourages drivers to exceed the speed limit, all of these roads are 30mph limits, but we see speeds in excess of 60+mph.

This puts the lives of all of our community at risk.

 

The Team is made up of local residents volunteering there time, working with Surrey Police to make our roads safer.

 

 

If you would like to give up an hour fortnightly to take part in the Speed Watch Scheme contact Jeanie (The Parish Clerk) at burstowpc@btconnect.com for more details.

Volunteers require training of 1hour 30mins approx. held at Reigate Police Station.
