A proposal to allow Aberdeen’s residents to use speed cameras will be considered by councillors next week.
Councillor Ian Yuill first backed the idea of a community speedwatch scheme back in June, which sees police train residents to use speed guns.
However the council decided to refer the matter to the operational delivery committee, which meets on Thursday, to make a decision.
Mr Yuill said in his motion that speeding remains a problem on some roads in communities across the city and welcomed Police Scotland’s efforts to tackle the problem.
He argued police have limited resources and training residents to use speed guns would play a part in reducing drivers’ speeds and changing behaviours.
The councillor has called on the council to discuss with Police Scotland how the scheme could be introduced.
