Speeding through the Village is a regular problem, although Chelford Speedwatch is having some positive results. However, there are growing concerns from residents about speeding vehicles using side roads and in particular, Dixon Drive closest to the Egerton Arms. These concerns have been raised with the Parish Council. The speed limit on Dixon Drive is 30 mph and there should be no confusion as to what is the limit.
Unfortunately, there is a growing tendency for some residents to exceed the limit on Dixon Drive and in some cases by quite a margin. Dixon Drive has potential hazards for drivers, including young children, cyclists, a tight bend and parking on the road, which reduces traffic to a single line on occasions.
The Parish Council is keen to ensure that all roads are safe for resident drivers and pedestrians and councillors request that residents observe speed limits and drive safely on the Parish roads.
