Anti-Social Driving and Road Safety

Councillor Singh to move:


This Council is determined to take further steps to combat the scourge of dangerous and anti-social driving, which has been reported over many years and months, and continues to be a significant issue for communities across the Borough.


Speeding, reckless and dangerous driving is utterly abhorrent and poses significant and unnecessary risks to both road users and pedestrians alike. 


As a Council, we have a duty and responsibility to protect all our residents living in the Borough and those visiting or passing through our towns. 


This Council resolves to:-


·       Call on the Chief Executive to write to the Berkshire Chief Superintendent to ask to take initiatives across the Borough to catch offenders, crackdown on dangerous drivers and provide reassurance to the community. 


·       Call on the Chief Executive to write to the Berkshire Chief Superintendent to undertake a borough wide initiative to reduce the illegal use of off-road bikes and e-scooters which are a cause of significant anti-social behaviour.


·       To ask Council to provide information on its road safety performance on the Council’s website.


·       To ask Council to participate in the Road SafetyWeek annual campaign and spread awareness.
