Drivers urged to slow down

Have your say

EIGHT motorists are to receive warning letters about their speed after they were caught driving too fast by residents monitoring traffic in Hathersage.

The drivers were clocked by Community Speed Watch volunteers on the A6187 Sheffield Road.

Sgt Andy Wordsworth, of the Hathersage Area Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “We hope to see a reduction in the number of letters we send out, as it will hopefully show that the message is getting out to motorists about the importance of driving to the limit and safety for local residents.

“The initiative is all about raising awareness of speeding, and giving the community a chance to work with their local police officers and PCSOs to help take action on something which has been raised as a concern.”
