Community Speed Watch


Community Speed Watch gives local people the chance to be actively involved in making our roads safer.  Local residents who are interested in becoming volunteers will be offered the chance to be trained and then help monitor speeds with speed detection equipment. It is not speed enforcement but it is a very useful tool to help monitor and reduce speeding traffic. Information is recorded and passed to the police, which results in a warning letter being sent to the registered keeper of the speeding vehicle.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer please contact the Clerk on 850213 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
