Speeding car

A Community Speedwatch team has been operating in our village for around 15 years. It provides a valuable service to our community encouraging motorists passing through to keep to the legal speed limit of 30/40 mph or less.

There have been a number of incidents and "near misses" in recent months, which can be particularly hazardous for pedestrians and children. Since the group was set up, the average number of passing vehicles "speeding" has been reduced from about 10% to under 2%.
To promote continued safety on our local roads, Community Speedwatch is seeking additional volunteers. You would receive police training and help organise sessions, usually in teams of three people, to observe and record speeding vehicles. When time permits there is a uniformed police presence during sessions, which is a helpful support.
Why not consider joining the Curry Rivel Community Speedwatch team? Even if you can only spare one or two hours per month, it really boosts our effectiveness in helping to keep our roads safer for everyone.
Interested? Then please call Robert Crowley, Community Speedwatch Co-ordinator, on 01458 259434 or email: robert.crowley242@btinternet.com
