THE three Tweeddale West councillors welcomed dummy speed cop Pop-up Bob to West Linton in a bid to enforce 20mph limits in the village.

Tweeddale West councillor Drummond Begg said: “Despite speed limits being reduced to 20mph in built-up areas some drivers continue to choose to speed.

“On one strip of road in West Linton, four cats have been killed during the past few years.

“If a driver can’t stop in time to avoid hitting a cat they must be going way too fast in a 20mph zone.

“All three Tweeddale West councillors – myself, Eric Small and Viv Thomson – have been hearing from residents about their experiences regarding vehicle speed.

“We all hope that speeding in residential areas will become as socially unacceptable as drink-driving, twenty’s plenty.”
