Padfield – Speed Watch :
Taking place during “Travel Smart week”, a special session of Community Speed Watch took place yesterday in Padfield.
Padfield is one of the first areas in Derbyshire to have a 20 mile per hour speed limit, and Councillor Nick Longos, along with children from Padfield Primary School’s School Council, Derbyshire Constabulary PCSO’s Brian Buller and Tracey Collins and Speed Watch Volunteers David Marshall and Eric Platt carried out a Community Speed Watch session.
The aim of the session was to highlight the 20 mph speed limit in the village, along with providing an opportunity for the PCSO’s to remind the children on road safety issues.
The session saw around 50 cars go past with most driving within the 20 mile limit either before they approached the group or as the passed the group !
Community Speed Watch take place in a number of areas across Glossopdale, where volunteers work with the Police to monitor and tackle issues around speeding vehicles – for more information contact your local safer neighbourhood team
