“In line with my long term plan for policing in Suffolk, this month I’m focussing on the thorny issue of speeding and speed enforcement.

Speeding is a subject which clearly splits public opinion. It is an issue that comes up regularly as I speak to people across the county and it dominates my mail bag. I have just completed a series of community meetings across the county and speeding has been one the most fiercely debated issues; I have been amazed by the breadth of opinion.  Some people consider that there should be more robust enforcement especially in villages and near schools, while others vehemently object to mobile speed cameras.

In order to get a true sense of the scale of the issue I have launched a speeding survey to get a real understanding of how speeding enforcement, or the lack of it, is affecting the different communities across the county. I would welcome your views.

The survey is published on my website and should only take a few minutes to complete. Please use this link http://www.suffolk-pcc.gov.uk/news/pcc-confirms-community-safety-funds-across-county .

The speeding survey will be available throughout June. The results will be published on the PCC website in July.

I do hope you will be able to have your say, I really appreciate your support.
