Speeding in Standlake

In common with many other villages in the area, Standlake has a problem with vehicles speeding through our residential roads. In response to concerns raised by residents, Standlake Parish Council has initiated a Community Speedwatch programme.

The Speed Indicator Device from the Thames Valley Police Eynsham Neighbourhood Team will be used at sites throughout Standlake to monitor vehicle speeds, and details of vehicles exceeding the speed limit will be recorded. Letters will be sent to the registered keepers of offending vehicles by Thames Valley Police to inform them that their vehicle has been reported as speeding.

The aim of the initiative is to remind drivers that Standlake is a residential area and that the 30 mph speed limit is in place to protect the residents of the village as well as all road users.
