  • For speeding in general, this road safety concern would be a matter for Northamptonshire Police, as they would have the ability to decide on taking appropriate action against drivers that may be breaking traffic laws within this residential area. Northamptonshire Police can consider operating speed surveys or mobile speed enforcement. Such requests can be done via your local Safer Communities Team by calling the non-emergency telephone number 101 or by the following link on the Northants Police website. In addition to this, a leaflet was sent out to households in our county from the Northamptonshire Police & Crime Commissioner that includes some information of interest to you and for those in communities who have concerns about speeding vehicles in their area. This involves running a Community Speed Watch initiative and empowers communities to help cut speeding in their areas. The Police’s Community Speed Watch initiative provides all that is needed to be able to catch speeding drivers and allowing the public to take control of problem areas in their community. For more information about how to create a local Community Speed Watch scheme, email: commissioner@northantspcc.pnn.police.uk
