Community Speed Watch is an educational scheme designed to help people reduce speeding traffic though their community.

It enables volunteers to work within their community to raise awareness of the dangers of speeding and to help control the problem locally.

Offending vehicles’ details are recorded and passed on to police, with the owner of the vehicle sent a letter to inform them of the Offence.
