Drivers caught breaking the speed limit in a busy village road on Thursday will be getting a stern warning in the post.
Staking out Straight Road in Old Windsor armed with speed guns were the chairman of the village's Neighbourhood Action Group Jen Sams, plus Royal Borough community wardens Matt Barrie and Steve Stentiford.
Their speed guns were capable of pinpointing the speed of cars exceeding the road's recently imposed 30mph limit.
Similar checks are carried out regularly on roads across the borough. They do not have legal weight but caught out drivers get warning letters, reminding them that the next speed gun which catches them could be wielded by a police officer - leading to points on their licence, a fine and a possible ban.
The Royal Borough's community safety manager Brian Martin said that 10 drivers had been caught out during last week's two hour stake-out.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
Further details have been revealed over how many trains will be running in Slough, Windsor and Maidenhead during planned rail strikes later this month.
