CONCERNS have been raised in Bilton regarding speeding traffic especially among Holmes Lane. The Police report that this location is already covered by an active Speed Watch Group who attend regularly, however the problem persists.
The Neighbourhood Policing Team will be proactively looking at the issue. The Bilton Speed Watch Group will continue to attend and alongside this a period of enforcement will also take place by the Neighbourhood Team. Offending drivers caught speeding will be dealt with via speed seminars, Fixed Penalty Notices or court proceedings depending on the level of speed found.
Police have also acted on concerns about under-age drinking, criminal damage and speeding incidents in Aldborough village. However, Inspector Mark Coulthard, in the latest report for the Mid Holderness area says it has become apparent that residents are regularly witnessing varying forms of anti-social behaviour as well as suffering from it. But, for whatever reason, they are choosing not to report incidents to the police.
“The Neighbourhood Policing Team strongly urges anyone who witnesses/suffers from anti-social behaviour to report the problem as without that report there is little we can do to resolve the issue. Please don’t suffer in silence. If it is affecting your quality of life then report it on our new telephone number 101 or if you would like to speak to one of our team feel free to attend on of our Police Surgeries.”
