Speeding vehicles become the new policing priority for Buxton Rural

Posted on 29th July 2014

Officers will be clamping down on speeding vehicles across the Buxton Rural communities after setting the issue as the new policing priority.

The priority was agreed by officers and local residents after concerns were raised at the latest Safer Neighbourhood governance meeting held on Wednesday, July 23.

Officers will be monitoring the speeds of vehicles within the Safer Neighbourhood area, focusing particularly on Batham Gate Road and Peak Forest.

The team will be taking action to highlight the importance of safe and considerate driving and will be carrying out speed checks in the problem areas at key times.

PC Pat Findlay-Wilson from the team will also be heading out on increased patrols and speaking to motorists the importance of sticking to the law on the roads.

Warnings or fines will be issued to motorists who are found to be breaking the limit.  

To speak to your local Safer Neighbourhood team call 101, the non-emergency number for Derbyshire police.
