Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later
There are frequently people speeding on Oxford Road in Thame. Some going around 50mph in a 30mph area. It has always been a problem in the evening/night time but seems more of an issue in the day with the roads being quieter at the moment. I contacted the police asking if they'd consider positioning a speed trap from time to time and they suggested contacting the council for a more long term solution. The speed camera that is currently there does not appear to be turned on and it does nothing to slow the traffic going in the direction out of Thame. Are there any other traffic calming options being considered? It is quite frightening particularly where the footpath is narrow near Lord Williams school.

Thank you for your report. Indeed, you are correct in that it is the Police which are the enforcing body for vehicles that are either speeding or driving without due care and attention etc. We would suggest that, if this remains of concern, this is raised with the police again and/or discussed with Thame Town Council so that, if it is identified as a priority for the town, this matter can be considered through the town council further.
