Crime Commissioner Tim Passmore has said that speeding issues need to be addressed with greater flexibility rather than a one size fits all approach.

Mr Passmore was responding to the the 2,000 replies to a survey conducted by his office which saw people calling for greater enforcement in villages and built up areas and a review of speed limits with a focus on accident hot spots.

Speaking this week Mr Passmore said: “Roads like the A143. 134 and 140 pass through a lot of villages and we have to make sure people respect the speed limits particularly in this area. We need more appropriate enforcement and to use what resources we have to look after public safety.

“A significant number of people responded to the survey and with that evidence we can take it to the county council and Suffolk Roads Partnership.”

Speeding should also be tackled by consent rather than fixed camera vans he added. The findings will be discussed at the PCC’s accoountability and performance panel next Tuesday.
