The way some of the cars go up and down Queen Street. Especially the way they take the bend by the Ironsides club it's just madness.

The councillors the POLICE the over paid POLICE COMMISSIONER along with his over paid cronies are well aware of the problem of speeding and the off road bikes BUT as the POLICE (and the commissioner who states its not his remit) say they are un able to do anything about the problem.

Like black spot road accident there has to be a fatality or 2 before they can/will do anything.

I find it odd that other police areas take road crime very seriously to the point of being over the top. Maybe Gwent police haven't the right education and are un able to read the highway code along with the laws of the lane and the top bods are to busy out and about playing golf and other self interests to care.

Mind its not going on in there back garden either.

Ive only just read these posts and I have to say I am really fed up of the loonies speeding around up Cefn Golau but especially up Park Hill and into Cefn where there is a nasty bend. They come around on the wrong side of the road, screeching their way as they go. Someone is going to get killed and I hope its not someone innocent that's coming the other way towards one of these idiots. I've really had enough and am thinking of going to the council to see if we could have speed bumps like they have over Hilltop. Any thoughts anyone?

Bottom line fizz the police will do nothing until there has been a fatality what's more the problem is only going to get worse now the kids are out of school (mind are they ever in school) as there off road bikes are going to be used all day every day.

Watch out make sure your fuel tank is locked and your vehicle is on plain sight as a screwdriver through the tank will provide fuel for them.

Getting the council to do something is as good as getting the police to deal with the problem as they have the excuse that they are unable to chase the purps due to health and safety there's not ours. As for the councillors ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm O and the police commissioner na its not in his remit to see to the problem.


So all in all we have many many public workers that we are paying for doing as per norm nothing for the public not even the jobs we pay them for.

I have come to the conclusion that speeding is fairly generic throughout tredegar, this is something that the police must be aware of, one only has to watch the traffic for a few minutes to obsverve it.The people who flout the law do so knowing that the police in our town are not interested.
Maybe it has something to do with the enforced cut backs undergone by the force, i dont know. All i do know is that you can see people speeding etc on side streets and main roads throughout the town, its an accident waiting to happen.

I can well believe it Fredd. I just don't understand how they justify ignoring such a massive problem in Tredegar. And Gom and Darole, I agree with you both. Well God forbid there be a terrible incident, (I can't call it accident because to me, what they are doing is intentional and an accident is not) because I'll be the first to shout to Gwent police I BL**DY TOLD YOU SO.

Our police are not worthy of the uniform they wear let alone the wages we pay them on many many occasions I have seen them driving past law breaking individuals looking the other way, when questioning the so called police chiefs they all ways come up with the same reply that the police officer was on his/her way to a more important crime.

I have never been so disgusted and my respect for this service has now gone.

I have been told by the chiefs themselves that even laws of our land carved in stone that other police services take action on are only discretionary in Tredegar.


All you will ever get from them is hot air and B.S.

2 weeks it took them to contact me about reported accident damage to my car. My reply no wonder crime stats are going down what good is it now in making a statement. O yes and the accident was caused by one of these road racers, and Im now £500 out of pocket for repairs.

See my post " And don't we know it" and I think the answer must be yes. Less finance less police people,petty crime not worth being investigated.

2 weeks to get in touch with me about a road accident (damage to my car) and that was just a phone call so not logged no crime report = less crime in Gwent. Job done one happy over paid police commissioner bragging I have got crime down.

It is becoming obvious that the Police are almost becoming non-existent in Tredegar lately when you look at the amount of anti-social behaviour, vandalism and dangerous or reckless driving that seems to be happening, perhaps this is down to staff cutbacks or maybe they are in training for the upcoming NATO summit due to be held in Newport. As for the claim that crime is falling, in some cases I donít think people bother reporting some offences because of the lacklustre response they expect to get off the Police these days.

In my opinion the role of the Police and Crime Commissioner should be scrapped as soon as possible because the money saved from ending this non-job and getting rid of the support staff that work under the Police and Crime Commissioner could be diverted back into Police budgets.

The Commissioners role is nothing but a waste of time and money anyway as they are only there to be conveniently used as a scapegoat to divert blame away from the government for the cuts to Police Force budgets.

As you can see from my original post on the 25/06/2014 about car's using Cefn Golau like a race track. Unfortunately the problem still. Exists. In fact I feel the problem as got a lot worse. There's a lot on quad bikes on the roads now. And I see a lot of them up and around Cefn golau. I realise that the authorities are stretched to the Limit. And please correct me if I'm wrong they say they can't do nothing until someone has an accident or god forbid something worse happens. Now to me this is just complete and utter Madness. I don't know what other people who live in Cefn Golau feel about this situation and if I'm honest I don't even know what can be done about it. But I would hate to see someone lose their life because some individuals feels like they are Lewis Hamilton.

Quad bikes are a right pain, always see them (especially on a Sunday) driving around town, no number plate so no insurance. Nothing every gets done about it....
