What is Community Speedwatch?
Speeding is a community problem and Community Speedwatch enables people to get actively involved in road safety and helps encourage drivers and motorcyclists to watch their speed and keep to the limit. Community Speedwatch is undertaken by volunteers who are trained to use a detection device to monitor the speeds of vehicles travelling through their local area. The registration numbers of speeding vehicles are recorded.
This information is then collated and for those that have exceeded the limit, warning letters are then sent out by the Police to the registered keepers stating that their vehicle has been reported as speeding. Locations for monitoring speed are selected from sites suggested by the community, based on where there is the most local concern about speeding traffic, or the impact of speed.
Warning letters with words of advice on road safety will be sent to the offenders by Avon and Somerset Constabulary. Further detected speeding may result in reinforcement by the police.
