PEEBLES residents are being invited to stick it to speeders in the town.

A scheme is being launched for locals to place speed-limit stickers on their roadside wheelie bins.

Peebles Community Council is looking for anyone living in known speeding areas to purchase the eye-catching stickers.

The move follows a similar scheme by the community council and residents in West Linton to combat speeding earlier this year.

Secretary of Peebles Community Council, Anne Snoddy said: “The Community Council would be prepared to order a print run of 50 or more if there was enough interest.

“Unfortunately in these austere times householders would have to pay for the stickers themselves.

“The cost would be £1.20 for a regular sticker and £3.50 for a reflective one.

“Please let us know if you would be interested in buying a sticker by Friday, November 17 so we can place an order.”

Anyone interested can contact Anne through email at or telephone 01721 722882.
