We want to make our streets safe for everyone and we have been working with the Highway Safety Team and the Neighbourhood Policing Team to achieve this. Please use the contact details below to report to the council and to the Neighbourhood Policing Team. This will help us take appropriate action. Speeding is already a neighbourhood priority for the Police in Lindley.
Local authorities in particular have faced substantial budget and spending restrictions, which affect our ability to deliver the vast range of essential public services for which we are responsible. While road safety must accept its share of these restrictions, we understand cutting road safety services too far will mean more people being killed or injured.
Despite these challenges, local authorities can continue to deliver effective road safety services that help to keep their people alive and healthy by ensuring that their road safety services are:
Co-ordinated with other public services
Designed and delivered in partnership
Evaluated to ensure effectiveness

Roads policing supports and complements road safety education and engineering, and is an essential part of road safety. It:
Deters illegal, dangerous and careless behaviour on the road
Detects illegal, dangerous and careless behaviour on the road
Identifies the causes of crashes
Helps to educate, and change the attitudes of, road users
Prevents other forms of crime
Identifies and removes dangerous vehicles
Please report issues to the Police
In an Emergency always dial 999.
For Non Emergencies dial 101.

We are in favour of 20mph limits and zones in Lindley, near our schools and residential areas.
Because it is safer, healthier, fairer, greener, quieter and better for people’s quality of life.
You are 7 times less likely to die if hit at 20mph than 30mph or 10 times if over 60 years old.
In the distance a 20mph car can stop, a 30mph car will still be doing 24mph. Far better to just miss than actually hit someone or be hit at any speed.
