A newly formed speed-watching group is hoping to have a camera installed along a residential street in Chesham.

Campaigners created the movement this month after several motorists were caught travelling at around 55pmh along Lye Green Road in the town.

The current street has a 30mph limit with two schools and a residential home being based along the road.

Those in the group have also asked the town’s Liberal Democrat MP, Sarah Green, to wade in on the issue to stop excessive speeding.

One of the members said: “Speeding has become an issue along Lye Green Road as there are two schools and a residential home feeding into the road.

“We started measuring speeds along the road and found vehicles were speeding up to 55mph.

“We subsequently tried help from the Chesham Town Council to put up more signs and moving vehicle activated signs.

“Initial reaction by one councillor during a meeting was positive and the Chair asked him to look at our problem however nothing has happened, and we have called Sarah Green MP to understand our problem.

“We desperately need either a camera or sign that activates by moving vehicle telling the driver of their speed.”
