Community Speed Watch.

In response to concerns regarding cars speeding through the village, Oakamoor Parish Council are considering a community speed watch scheme. Details of the scheme are available at http://www.staffssaferroads.co.uk/my-community/community-speed-watch.

Before the council commits any money to the scheme, I would like to hear what the community thinks of the idea and whether anyone is prepared to volunteer to support it.
