Issues with vehicles exceeding the 30-mph speed limit through the village

Issue Date Thursday 1st February 2024

We will be a high visibility in this area of concerns around key times. Enforcement or words of advice will be given depending on the nature of the issue. We will carry out speed checks when able to. We are also working with Cumbria Fire & Rescue Service who are the lead organisation to deliver educational inputs to young drivers; this has been done on a night time in hot spot areas or via school educational input. Shap PCSO has also been in to do an input with Mini Police at Shap Primary School regarding road safety and as a treat allowed them to test and check the speed of motorists through Shape villages.

Action Date Wednesday 14th February 2024
