Forum cash helps keep Buckingham roads safe

Roads across Buckingham could be safer thanks to a grant of £3,560 from Buckinghamshire County Council Buckingham Local Area Forum (LAF).

The LAF has teamed up with Buckingham Community Speed Watch Group to buy a state-of-the-art mobile speed camera which can be used by parishes around Buckingham.

The small digital speed detection camera enables errant drivers to be identified by recorded footage, avoiding the need of volunteers to stand at the side of the road writing down the details as with the old technology

Warren Whyte (pictured), LAF chairman and Speed Watch volunteer, said: "Thanks to our Community Speed Watch volunteers, we have been able to undertake Speed Watch sessions around Buckingham, and with this new equipment funded by the county council, it will be much easier to set up and use in future sessions. 

“With the easier to use new camera, we can have additional Speed Watch sessions and help encourage better driving around Buckingham parishes. By working together we can all help to make the roads a lot safer."
