A BARNSLEY MP met with local police officers recently in a bid to stop speeding motorists in and around Penistone.
Miriam Cates, MP for Penistone and Stocksbridge, spoke to officers from the Penistone area team alongside Coun Robert Barnard.
She said she has been contacted by a number of residents regarding speeding vehicles in Wortley.
She added: “I am pleased that the police are working to monitor and deter speeding in the area with the use of speed vans and through speed watch sessions like the one I attended.
“It was helpful to talk through other means of tackling the issue, such as with the use of signage.
“It was also a good opportunity to raise other matters, including drink driving which I know is a concern for local people.
“I’d like to thank Inspector Rebecca Richardson and the team, and continue to engage with them to explore solutions to the issues that matter most across Penistone and our villages.
“I’ll be sure to keep constituents updated on our progress to make roads safer.”
