Cam­era helps slow driv­ers

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Front Page -

DRIV­ERS who speed though three vil­lages will soon see signs telling them how fast they are go­ing. Vol­un­teers from Chil­ham, Sell­ing and Old Wives Lees have been trained by po­lice to use por­ta­ble signs which warn mo­torists if they are break­ing the speed limit. The train­ing took place along a stretch of Sell­ing Road, Old Wives Lees, which has a 30mph re­stric­tion, of­ten flouted by driv­ers. Trevor Val­lis, act­ing chair­man of Chil­ham’s PACT group, said: “The plan is to tar­get parts of the three vil­lages on ran­dom days and times so we can monitor the speed of driv­ers.”
