Community Speed Watch volunteers

Community Speedwatch (CSW) is a national initiative where, in partnership with the police, members of communities use detection devices to monitor local vehicle speeds.

The volunteers report drivers exceeding the speed limit to the police with the aim of educating drivers to slow down.

If the data proves a driver is ignoring repeated warnings police can prosecute them. The aim is to:

  • reduce death and injury on the roads
  • improve the quality of life for local communities
  • reduce the speed of vehicles to the speed limit
  • increase public awareness of inappropriate speed

The group has successfully identified areas of the parish that need closer monitoring and speed indicator devices have been installed. To keep this much valued community group going we need volunteers. Training is provided by Staffordshire policeĀ  and on average you would need to commit just one hour per month of your time.
