Speeding Complaints

We share concerns about speeding motorists and seek to address those concerns to reduce casualties and improve the safety and quality of life for people who live and travel in North Yorkshire.

Working with the 95 Alive Road Safety Partnership organisations, a speed management protocol has been developed, that shows how a complaint about speeding will be assessed and responded to, including details of how to report any concerns. This is the same whether the complaint is from a parish or district council, a resident, or has been raised as a concern by a local police officer or school governor.
