Speed enforcement put in place for safety/prevention in Toddington, Bedfordshire
Toddington is a bypass village set off of junction 12 on the M1. The traffic flow through the village can be busy with large and small vehicles passing through. A lot of vehicles ignore the 30 mph speed restrictions in place which cause it to be significantly dangerous and noisy for residents.
My main aim is for the village to have speed enforcements put in place for the safety of residents in the village and particularly for residents including young children living or walking along the main road through the village. Although the village is a 30mph road, this is ignored through out the day and night. Enforcing the speed will not only help prevent accidents or fatality’s but will help with the noise of vehicles with noisy adapted engines. The noise disrupts villagers day and night.
