Volunteers are being asked to help deter speeding motorists in Nunthorpe by signing up to a new Community Speed Watch.
Spearheaded by Cllr Mieka Smiles, Deputy Mayor and Conservative councillor for Nunthorpe, the Community Speed Watch will see residents join a growing team of volunteers to record the speed of passing motorists.
The information gathered will then be used to bring forward fines and potentially prosecutions for drivers putting others in danger by speeding.
Members of the public have been turning out to get their Covid jabs in our area this week.
