Speeding on the A48 is continuing even though the police have been monitoring the situation; see Police Matters. Reports on these incidents can be made to the police to keep them informed telephone number 101 for a non-serious incident and 999 for emergency.
The Community Council discussed ideas for restricting speed to safe levels on both the A48 and Celtic Way, (the road to nowhere).
