Current SNT Priorities

You are telling us that the following issues are priorities in your area:

PRIORITY (June 2015)

You are saying… Speeding across Rural East Dorset..

We are doing… As an ongoing issue we will continue to conduct road side speed checks across the area to enforce speed limits and educate drivers, as we are continuing to receive numerous calls of complaint regarding speeding. The Community Speed Watch Groups will also be continuing their amazing efforts across Rural East Dorset in a bid to address driving habits through our villages.

You are saying... Thefts from unattended motor vehicles

We are doing... With the longer days and the nice weather now here there are more cars parking up in our beauty spot car parks and unfortunately with that comes more thefts from unattended motor vehicles. We are going to carry out extra patrols of all our car parks and educate motorists about keeping their valuables and vehicles safe.

Valuable possessions, such as handbags and satellite navigation systems, as well as parts and accessories, such as catalytic converters and number plates, are being targeted from unattended vehicles across the county.

To lower your chances of becoming a victim of these crimes remember the following security advice:

  • -Lock the doors, windows, boot and sun-roof every time you leave your vehicle.
  • -Remove all valuables such as handbags, wallets, mobile phones, clothes, tools and laptops or other possessions from your vehicle.
  • -Remove satellite navigation equipment and GPS from your vehicle, including the cradle, it is a favourite among thieves.
  • -To stop number plates from being stolen, fit theft-resistant number plates to your car ensuring that they conform to DVLA standard or replace existing screws with ones that cannot be unscrewed (these are called clutch screws).
  • -Consider using a steering wheel or handbrake lock and fit locking wheel nuts as wheels can also be a target for car thieves.
  • -Fit an alarm or immobiliser to your vehicle.
  • -If you have one, use a garage.

-If you park your car on a driveway, ensure that you have good security lighting as this will make your car visible to the street and can deter would-be-thieves.
