Signs to warn speedsters

RESIDENTS in Hutton will be getting a new tool in their battle against speeding cars.

RESIDENTS in Hutton will be getting a new tool in their battle against speeding cars.

For years villagers have had to put up with youths using their roads as a 'racetrack', according to parish councillor Sharon Chitty.

Now, North Somerset Council has joined forces with the Hutton Local Action Team (LAT), which operates Speedwatch, and will shortly be delivering two flashing 30mph warning signs.

The signs are activated if a car is going above the speed limit and will be placed at two traffic hotspots in the village still to be decided.

PC Adrian Woolacott, who patrols the village, said they are a 'good road safety measure' because they educate the public rather than prosecuting them.

The signs are expected to be up by the end of November.
