It’s not new but many locations across the country are using bin-day as part of their anti-speeding campaigns.
The idea is that you place a simple sticker on your refuse bins and when you put them out at the kerb more drivers take notice and hopefully pay more attention to their speed.
Whilst some councils and speed awareness groups are actively encouraging the use of the stickers, which can be bought freely via several online sites, other councils have had to issue warnings to some residents who have left their bins out on a permanent basis with the association of British Drivers (ABD) having expressed their concerns and questioned whether the practice is even legal
One successful area that has used the stickers, has had their police chief inspector praise them as an innovative way of educating motorists
We’d love to hear your thoughts on this topic. Would you put a sticker on your wheelie bin and what roads in your area do you think would benefit best from this type of scheme?
