Community Speedwatch Needs You

Back home  /  Latest News  /  Community Speedwatch
speeding red car

Roads round here have become racetracks.

Drivers are speeding with impunity.

Why don't people realise that speeding is breaking the law?

How many times have you said that. Or heard that? Or more likely read it on FaceBook!

Well, if you have a few hours to spare why not join SpeedWatch. You will have seen them – a band of dedicated volunteers standing by the roadside in high-viz jackets monitoring speed at different locations throughout the village.

Community SpeedWatch is a national scheme where proactive members of local communities participate and, with the support and supervision of their local police, record details of speeding vehicles using approved detection devices. You can find out more here

New volunteers are needed in Curry Rivel. Some of the existing team have been involved for many years and for various reasons now feel the need to stand down. Full training is provided in two stages

  • a short on line application, involving very easy video memory test
  • road side training, supervised by senior members of the Curry Rivel team


Usually two watches are organised a week on a random basis across 18 sites in Curry Rivel. Each lasts about an hour. There isn't a rota as such, just volunteer for the ones you can do.

If you think you can help or want more information please contact Robert Crowley, Community SpeedWatch Co-ordinator; 01458 259434 robert.crowley242@btinternet.com
