Set up a Community Speed Watch
If driving speeds are too high along your road and in your neighbourhood, and drivers regularly exceed 20mph; work in partnership with the police to address the issue.
Motorists who speed through residential neighbourhoods are very often unaware of the impact their actions have on local residents, or the danger they pose to other road users and pedestrians and this is something we are working with communities to address. Community Speed Watch gives local people the ability to actively get involved in road safety.
- A Speed Watch consists of local residents, who are willing to volunteer a small amount of time each week to monitor speeds with speed detection equipment.
- Offenders will receive warning letters, and if they persist in speeding further action is taken by the police
