How do I stop people speeding down my street?
Park your car in the street, and get your neighbors to do the same. Parallel parking narrows the travel lane, naturally slowing traffic. Park cars on both sides to force drivers to slow down even more. Ask for traffic calming from your local public works department.
Who can stop you for speeding?
Answer: The Highways Agency Traffic Officers do not have powers to stop you for speeding. The one thing they have the power to do is to stop the traffic, due to accidents etc. If they ask you to stop and you don’t, you could get six points on your license.

Tips for Reducing the Likelihood of Speeding

- Use the cruise control especially when travelling on long straight roads for great distances.
What are traffic calming devices?
Traffic calming consists of physical design and other measures put in place on existing roads to reduce vehicle speeds and improve safety for pedestrians and cyclists. Traffic calming measures can be implemented at an intersection, street, neighborhood, or area-wide level.
Do speed bumps work in neighborhoods?
Although speed humps have been proven to reduce speed and make neighborhoods safer, some critics claim that they can cause damage to vehicles, increase emergency response time, and increase traffic noise. Fortunately, many of these issues can be mitigated through proper speed cushion planning.
Can I ask for photographic evidence of speeding?
Yes. If this is not supplied with the Notice of Intended Prosecution, it should be made available on request. However, the Police will emphasise that the photograph does not need to identify the driver, merely the vehicle. Consequently, on many occasions, the photograph will not actually show the driver at all.
How many points do you get for speeding?
Most speeding offences result in the driver receiving 3-6 points and depends on where the offence occurred, how fast you are travelling and your previous record.
Can you check if you’ve been caught speeding?
There’s no way to check if you’ve been caught speeding, you will have to wait and see if you receive notice from the local police force in the post, which you should receive within 14 days.
Do you want to turn left at an intersection the light is green but oncoming traffic is heavy you?
When making a left turn where there is approaching traffic, you must wait for the approaching traffic to go through before you turn. You may enter the intersection to prepare for your left turn if the light is green and no other vehicle ahead of you plans to make a left turn.
When making a left turn in heavy traffic you must yield to which cars?
Drivers turning left must yield to oncoming vehicles going straight. At a four-way stop, the driver reaching the intersection first may proceed before the other drivers (after coming to a complete stop).
