Good afternoon and welcome to the new Community Speed Watch schemes that have joined us in the last month. Please find aside the CSW monthly report for June, another record month for CSW sessions in Avon and Somerset..!!
In the absence of a full newsletter this month, I provide a number of updates below:
441 roadside sessions were carried out by CSW schemes in Avon and Somerset, this topped the previous record of 433 in April 2021. This is a fantastic achievement, thank you everyone for your continued support.
National Speed Campaign
Next week is the start of the National Speed Campaign and we have been working with the Local Authorities to step up awareness to speed concerns across our communities. Over the next 3 weeks we will increase our visibility across the force. In addition to the excellent support already provided by the Speed Enforcement Unit our Roads Policing Unit and Special Constabulary will be deployed to provide enforcement support to you.
Dashcams and Cyclecams
Do you own a dashcam or ride with a camera? If so then do you know about our camera upload portal for road related offences supported with video evidence? We have just released the figures for the first 6 months of 2021. These figures are almost already at the levels dealt with for 2020.!
Please keep an eye on our social media and website for further updates on our activity and the national campaigns.
All the best and enjoy the sun this weekend.
