SPEEDING drivers in Crossford were stopped in their tracks as villagers joined forces with Police Scotland.

Volunteers took part in the community speed watch in an effort to deter and identify culprits.

Manned with speed guns, the initiative took place for an hour on Sunday April 7 on the A914 Main Street.

Dunfermline police thanked the participants and, on a post on their Twitter feed, added: “Following a community speed watch deployment at Main Street, Crossford, 18 drivers were given corrective advice in relation to their speed.”

Crossford Community Council’s chairperson, Joyce Matson, said fast drivers and those ignoring red lights had caused problems: “We are happy the police are looking at the problem of speeding through the village and that they acknowledge people jumping the lights.”
