Police crack down on speeding drivers in Tylers Green

Bucks Free Press: Police crack down on speeding drivers in Tylers Green Police crack down on speeding drivers in Tylers Green

POLICE in Tylers Green have been carrying out speed checks around the village.

The Chepping Wye Valley Neighbourhood Policing Team has been using various speed indication devices to show what speed vehicles have been travelling, on roads approaching the village.

Sgt Mat Lloyd, the Neighbourhood Team Sergeant, had received numerous complaints from residents regarding the speed of vehicles and the danger they pose to other motorists and pedestrians.

He said: "Our focus has been on Hammersley Lane, Cock Lane, Church Road and New Road. Many motorists have been stopped and spoken to regarding their speed, others will receive letters through the post and some have been reported for traffic offences. Each day, fewer vehicles have been caught exceeding the speed limit. We would like that to continue when we are not present."

The Roads Policing department, the Chalfont Neighbourhood team and the Safer Roads Partnership have also worked on the operation.

Sgt Lloyd added: "Our operation also coincided with the unveiling of the movable vehicle activated speed sign (MVAS) in Tylers Green. This movable sign will help remind people of the speed limits in Tylers Green. It has been provided by the Neighbourhood Action Group and partly funded by Chepping Wycombe Parish Council and a number local district councillors.

"Once this operation is complete, we will be returning to Tylers Green on a regular basis, so speeding motorists should be aware that we will be waiting for them."

And I am sure they will be far more successful with catching and fining someone doing 34mph in a 30mph limit than catching and finding the criminals committing all the crime in and around this area lately!

Like I said in a previous comment someone has to pay for their Christmas party and what better way than an instant fine, never mind the muggers, rapists, bank robbers, burglars that are running wild

Hopefully, the police presence will result in fewer car break-ins which are always quite prevalent just prior to Xmas. I just wish they set up half way down St John's Road, which seems to be a place where people try and drive as fast as they can. I once saw a cat get hit by a car there and it was heart-breaking. Imagine if that was a child.

A guy got run over at the top of our road a couple of years back, nothing to do with speed though, he just stepped out without looking properly.
