rise in reports of the anti-social riding of
motorbikes and scooters in the area.

Crackdown on
anti-social driving
You told us things like bad parking, speeding, tailgating and people talking on
their mobiles when driving are big concerns in local communities. We’re
responding by joining forces with Surrey County Council to launch our
SMART driving campaign - a countywide crackdown on these and other anti-
social driving habits that affect everyone. As a result you’ll notice more

policing activity on roads in your neighbourhood over the year ahead.
  Surrey’s 106 Safer Neighbourhood Teams, trained in the use of speed detection
and vehicle recognition equipment, are working alongside our Casualty Reduction
Officers to make Surrey’s roads and neighbourhoods safer. Community and School
SpeedWatch schemes are involved too, while education will be another vital part
of our SMART driving campaign. Students from 11-17 will receive Road Safety
presentations at schools, a Speed Awareness course will inform errant drivers of
the dangers of reckless road use – and regular Roadside Education & Enforcement
Days targeting ‘vehicle defects’ and giving advice about ‘journey preparation’ and
‘driving green’ are planned throughout 2009 - 2010.
