With traffic through Bickington in the mornings often at a stand-still, drivers resort to using roads like Lyddicleave and Ellerslie Road as rat runs, speeding along the residential streets.
It's time that stopped, so as district councillors we have secured a commitment from Devon and Cornwall Police to provide community Speed Watch training for residents.
The training qualifies anyone taking part to operate speed monitoring equipment and then use it to gather evidence to stop speeding drivers in their tracks.
The training takes a few hours to complete, and could make a huge contribution to make our roads safer.
If you'd like to take part in the scheme, please get in touch:
