Volunteers are being sought to become part of a Community Speed Watch group in a bid to tackle Frodsham’s speeding problem.
Frodsham Town Council has purchased a speed gun from another parish council and is hoping to set up a group comprising town councillors, residents and police which will be trained to use the speed gun and will record vehicles’ speeds at set locations.
The details will be recorded on a database and warning letters will be sent to the registered keepers of vehicles which were found to be speeding, advising them of speed and reminding them why it is a concern.
PCSO Neil Flanagan, of the Western Rural Neighbourhood Policing Unit, said: “Speeding is one of the factors that most affects the quality of life within the Frodsham area.
“Until now the neighbourhood policing team have been able to do some work to tackle this problem.
“However, because we are being told speeding is a big concern, we want to work with you.
“Community Speed Watch allows members of the community to volunteer and take action, helping us to educate drivers on the roads of concern in the area.”
The scheme will be managed by Frodsham Town Council and Cheshire police, but run by volunteers.
If you would like to volunteer for the group, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
