HUNDREDS of signs are being wheeled out to remind drivers to slow down.

The speed limit stickers are being distributed to residents along the A1198 and A603 running through Arrington and Wimpole as part of a trial to reduce speeding vehicles by South Cambridgeshire District Council (SCDC) and Cambridgeshire police.

Residents can fix the 40mph stickers to their black and green wheeled bins as a reminder to motorists of the correct speed limit.

The pilot has been launched after concerns about speeding motorists were raised at neighbourhood panel meetings.

SCDC's environmental portfolio holder Councillor Sue Ellington said: "I'm pleased we've been able to work with the police on this new way to encourage drivers to stick to the speed limit.

"Together, we've listened to what people have to say and come up with a practical way to tackle the issue. I look forward to seeing the results."

Police community support officer John Coppard, who, along with colleague Paul Lancaster, delivered the stickers to the residents, said: "Many rural roads change speed limits when you get to villages. This initiative will run alongside existing speed enforcement measures and I hope will prompt those irresponsible drivers who ignore the speed limit to pay attention to what the signs are telling them.
