Story

With the recently introduced 20 mph speed limits in some of our residential streets, and many more to come across the borough in the next year, the biggest concern my ward colleagues Kim Caddy, Terry Walsh and myself hear from people is "It's no use if it can't be enforced".

Our own Southfields Safer Neighborhood Team of the Metropolitan Police applied for funding to buy a dedicated speed gun to use in Southfields, but were unfortunately unsuccessful.

When we found out that it would only cost a relatively modest £5000 to buy the gun and to train several people in it's use, we felt sure the community would consider it a worthwhile asset for all our safety and reassurance.

Living locally as well, we are only too aware of the inconsiderate few who speed down some of our narrow residential roads, putting lives at risk, especially the young and the elderly.

Having a dedicated speed gun and trained personnel would be a terrific community asset, which would be both a deterent to those who thoughtlessly endanger us, and a useful reminder to us all of our responsibilies to the wider community.

With the number of households in our area, just a few pounds each would soon raise the funding needed to support our hard working local Police service in this worthwhile area. Please help us if you can, every small donation will make a difference!

We will also try to raise additional contributions by applying for any relevant funding grants available from the Council.

With many thanks in advance,

Cllrs Guy Humphries, Kim Caddy and Terry Walsh.

      I hope this happens. Most days my children and I encounter speeding on Replingham Rd and I'm fearful it's only a matter of time before someone gets hurt. Thanks for starting this.
