Speed Awareness Campaign – August has seen the launch of our speed awareness campaign to support Thames Valley Police (TVP) with their increased enforcement during August. Every day we are sharing a different snippet of info about speeding on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/TravelSafeBucks/) and our Twitter feed (https://twitter.com/TravelSafeBucks) . Have you been keeping up to date? You can share our posts to any of your Parish social media channels to spread the message further!
