CHESHIRE County Council's Road Safety Unit is celebrating after the 1,000th 'pace setter' joined the anti-speeding initiative Set the Pace.
Set the Pace asks both motorists and passengers to make a personal written commitment to drive at appropriate and legal speeds in a bid to tackle concerns about the speed of traffic in local communities.
The scheme has also just reached it first anniversary and to mark both occasions members of the Road Safety Unit presented 1,000th pace setter Carolyne Vickers with a celebratory cake at her home.
Executive member for Highways and Transportation John Burke said: 'Set the Pace is a great scheme to get people involved in trying to cut speed on our roads.
'The more people that sign up to Set the Pace the better.'
Mrs Vickers - a resident of Tattenhall for over 30 years - signed up as a result of a local campaign currently being run between Tattenhall Parish Council and Chester District Project Rural Matters.
Mrs Vickers said: 'I think Set the Pace is a great way of increasing people's awareness of speed.
'We all need to realise that we can intimidate others when driving too fast and that every time we drive a vehicle we are potentially a lethal weapon.'
In total 1087 people have signed up to Set the Pace in its first year - with 14 community groups across the county running local campaigns this year.
Local groups involved include: Alvanley Parish Council; Ashton Hayes Primary School; Broxton Parish Council; Capenhurst CE Primary School; Cotebrook Parish Council; Frodsham Town Council; Norley Parish Council; Tattenhall & District Parish Council; Utkinton Parish Council.
