Watch out for the Man with the Smile!

Home » Newsroom » Watch out for the Man with the Smile!

The Parish Council is delighted to report that a man with a very special digital 'smile' has been active recently in Tarvin and Oscroft and he has been aiming this at motorists. Unfortunately some of the results from this 'smile' have not been encouraging ones.

The smile belongs to a Speed Indication Device that had been deployed recently by PCSO Ryan Reid on Tarporley Road. This electronic warning has encouraged motorists to slow down and conform to the speed limit.
However on December 3rd in a period from 8.40am to 9.10am eight cars were displayed travelling on Tarporley Road between 45mph and 49mph and eight cars were travelling at over 50mph. Such excessive speed is neither safe nor sensible and is definitely illegal.

In a recent communication with the Parish Council PCSO Reid said "With regard to the issue of speeding in the Tarvin Parish area I will continue to deploy the Speed Indication Device whenever possible to warn drivers, and will carry out periodic speeding enforcement with my Police colleagues where I will send warning letters to the offending motorists, and the worst offenders will be prosecuted"

The new 40mpn road signs have been in place for some time now and the Parish Council urges all motorists to heed them for the safety of both motorists, other road users and pedestrians.

The Man with the Smile has given notice.
