Hundreds of thousands of commuters could be affected by strikes as action over driver-only trains spreads to northern rail networks.
Wirral Residents To Tackle Speeders
Merseyside Police have told Heart they want to work with local people to help reduce speeding on our roads.
Volunteers on the Community Speedwatch Scheme will join with neighbourhood policing teams, be shown how to use the radar guns, and take to problem speeding areas.
Motorists caught speeding by the volunteers won't be prosecuted at first, instead they will be written to by the police to warn them about their driving.
Chief Inspector Zoe Thornton told Heart "We want people to 'team-up' with their local police and community support officers and make a difference - even if it's just for one hour a week."
The speed checks will be put in places where locals have told police there is a particular problem with speeding on minor routes.
