Councillor Chris Blundell
Our Road Safety Forums, launched as part of the Community Partnerships ‘Road and Traffic Safety’ priority, continue to bring communities together to improve partnership working and address issues relating to speeding and protection of all road users. Speed data is being shared for review, leading to Suffolk Police exploring local enforcement options and work with other organisations such as Suffolk Highways. Local community initiatives such as SAVID (Safer Village Driving) have received funding to increase their Speed Indicator Device provision, and are also increasing their membership with several parishes currently joining.
The Forum is leading to partners working more closely together, sharing skills and experience to address common issues across the CP area. The Forum meets monthly and continues it work in between – our next meeting is due for early September in time to contribute towards National Road Safety Week in November for the second year running.
