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 our 95 Alive Road Safety Partnership organisations, we have developed a speed management protocol that shows how a complaint about speeding will be assessed and responded to. 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.

To report a site causing concern contact North Yorkshire Police Traffic Bureau
Tel: dial 101, choose option 2 and ask for the traffic bureau
