Dear Mr Speaker

NOTICE OF MOTION IN TERMS OF RULE OF ORDER 13

This council noting that:

  • Metro Police only have 5 mobile speed-timing devices (handheld/tripod mounted)
  • Sufficient funding exists to provide for additional devices
  • Changing driver behaviour requires sustained and random enforcement of speed limits
  • The cost of implementing this motion will be far exceeded by income generated

Resolves that the City Manager:

  1. Initiate procurement processes for 20 more mobile speed-timing devices, with suggested deployment:
    1. 3 for each of 5 Regional Commands (15)
    2. 5 for Specialised Enforcement Unit
  2. Ensure training and certification of personnel to operate the additional devices
  3. Consult ward councillors on sections of road needing speed enforcement
  4. Instruct Metro Police to report monthly to the HSS committee on:
    1. Progress in implementing this motion
    2. Summary of speed enforcement performed the Regional Commands and Specialised Enforcement
    3. The operational status of all 25 speed-timing devices
