Speed checks carried out in Donington and Quadring
District councillors and police have stepped up action to stop speeding and other unsafe driving in the Donington and Quadring area, leading to several reported offences and warnings.
After numerous residents and groups had expressed concerns about speeding in the area, police, working councillors, helped to increase the presence of the Safer Roads team to perform speed checks at random times and days.
Across three weeks' worth of patrols, police recorded seven reports of traffic offences in the village, six for speeding and one for driving without a valid MOT, and 15 people were given verbal warnings for more minor speeding infringements.
Coun Henry Bingham, South Holland District Councillor for Donington, Quadring and Gosberton, said: "Speeding and unsafe driving is a major concern I hear time and time again from residents across the ward, and it has been great to be able to help tackle this issue and see the immediate results that the team has had in the area.

"As well as the warnings and offences which have been reported during the patrols, the increased presence of the Safer Roads team has been effective in making many motorists more conscious of driving safely and considerately at all times in the ward. I would like to thank them for the positive impact they have had and look forward to continuing to work with them to build on this progress in the future."
