In view of Government cutbacks over the past years, communities recognise that statutory authorities cannot fund non-priority schemes and that Police enforcement resources are limited. Many communities are therefore keen to investigate road safety measures they can take forward to influence driver behaviour, including those relating to traffic calming and speed reduction.
