Speed Merchants Beware!

The Parish Council has received a complaint from an Oscroft resident about the excessive speed used by drivers travelling through Oscroft. This complaint concentrated on the speeding vehicles on Willington Road within the 30mph zone. As the road is frequently used by walkers, cyclists and young children there is a very real danger of a serious accident happening. The recent resurfacing of the roads, while very welcome, seems to have made the problem worse
The Clerk had passed on the information to PC Trow and the Parish Council was delighted to hear that a policeman with a speed gun had been deployed on a couple of occasions recently and a couple of motorists caught.
It was agreed to write and thank the police for their prompt response but to ask that this road be targeted on a regular basis with the speed trap also being deployed on the Willington side of the village green.
It was also agreed that the Clerk write to the Pryors Heyes Golf Club whose members are significant users of Oscroft's lanes. While the Parish Council does not wish to imply that golfers are bad drivers — except maybe off the tee! — it was felt that a timely reminder to them of the speed limit and a warning about possible speed traps, would be helpful.
The Parish Council would like to remind drivers that the speed limits are for the benefit of all, and that a few minutes added on to a journey are nothing compared to the safety of others and the quiet benefit of the countryside.
