Community Speedwatch enables local people to get involved in helping to tackle speeding in their neighbourhood to keep their roads safe.

All volunteers will receive relevant training, support and specialist equipment to allow them to monitor traffic speed in areas where local residents have said they are concerned that speeding is an issue.

Motorists who are caught driving above the speed limit by Community Speedwatch receive a letter from police; those caught more than once will be visited at home by an officer.

Police also use the information gained by volunteers to identify areas where enforcement action needs to be taken to tackle speeding.
