Residents prepare to monitor speeding motorists

Llangollen residents are preparing to get speeding motorists in their sights.

A group of four people from the town, including local county councillor Stuart Davies, recently attended the first meeting of the Llangollen Speedwatch group and were given the statutory training in hand-held speed devices.

Cllr Davies said: "We identified the areas of concern, both school roads - Brook Street to Pengwern and Dinbren Road by Dinas Bran, near the health centre, the A5 by the Wild Pheasant, Abbey Road and Pentrefelin.

"We are only allowed to operate in 20, 30 and 40 mph areas as it's too dangerous otherwise, according to the trainer who will now risk assess the designated areas to make sure they are safe for us to operate.

"Then away we go speed monitoring. If we identify speeders, their details are passed to the police, they then receive warning letters, two strikes and then get a ticket.

"The two strikes can be anywhere in North Wales."
