Harrow Labour councillors take part in ‘Community Roadwatch’ to catch speeding motorists

Labour councillors in Harrow have responded to community concerns and followed up with their local policing team in Harrow Town Centre to help improve road safety.

Councillors, Ghazanfar Ali, Aneka Shah-Levy and Dan Anderson attended and championed a Community Roadwatch scheme on Tuesday this week based at Sheepcote Road near the town centre.

The road watch provided the opportunity for local councillors and Harrow residents to work side by side with their local police teams and use speed detection equipment to identify speeding vehicles in their communities.

Following the initiative, speeding motorists are to be issued with warning letters and the information captured will help form the future activity of local police teams in Greenhill, Harrow Town Centre. During the road watch, one of the speeding vehicles was recorded travelling at 47mph in a 30mph zone!

Labour Councillor, and former Mayor of Harrow, Ghazanfar Ali said: “I am pleased to be taking part in this initiative to improve road safety as speeding vehicles cause huge concerns in the community. I and my colleagues hope to attend regularly and act on local concerns from residents to improve road safety in the Greenhill area.”
