The fight against speeding in Exwick continues
Back in November students from St Peter’s C of E High School joined PCs and PCSOs in Exwick Road, which is a 20mph zone, to check on car speeds.
Now two speed matrix boxes have been installed in the ward.
These flash when drivers go above the speed limit.
One has been positioned on the lamppost in Exwick Road by Exwick Villas and the other in Gloucester Road.

PCSO Will Malcolm said: “Hopefully by installing these two devices it will make drivers aware of the 20mph speed limit.”
Rob Hannaford, county councillor for the ward, said: “As local residents are aware, speeding traffic and dangerous driving continue to be a persistent problem in many parts of Exwick.
“In particular it occurs along Exwick Road, Exwick Villas and Gloucester Road.
“After many years of work and lobbying the Highways Department about this, with the police, Neighbourhood Watch Committees and others, I am very pleased that we now have two interactive speed signs in place at these hot-spot locations.
“I have used some of my community funding to install these, and I hope they will help matters.
“I also understand that this will be further backed up in the future with some more random police checks and enforcement work.”
