Speeding motorists and inconsiderate parking become policing priorities in South Normanton and Pinxton

Posted on 24th June 2015

Officers are set to put the brakes on speeding motorists and inconsiderate parking in South Normanton and Pinxton after setting the issues as their latest priorities.

Officers from the area's Safer Neighbourhood team hosted a Community Panel Meeting on Friday, June 19 to give local people the opportunity to voice their concerns about issues in the area.

The feedback from the public was then used to set policing priorities for the team to focus on.

Officers will be heading out to carry out speed checks on local roads, especially around the Ball Hill and Market Place areas, after residents raised concerns about motorists exceeding the speed limits.

Drivers who are found to be speeding will be spoken to by the team and issued with a warning or fine.

The team will also be speaking to motorists about the importance of safe and considerate parking after listening to the views of local people.

The meeting saw residents speaking to their local Safer Neighbourhood team about inconsiderate parking in Market Street, South Normanton and around Pinxton Kirkstead Junior School.

Officers from the South Normanton and Pinxton Safer Neighbourhood Team will be carrying out increased patrols in key areas to encourage motorists to park safely and responsibly.

The policing team will also be visiting Kirkstead Junior School at pick-up and drop-off times when the road is busiest to highlight the importance of considerate parking to allow children and their parents to cross the road safely.
