Volunteers needed for Speedwatch 2018

Posted: Mon, 19 Feb 2018 11:09 by Alison Benson

Residents in West Hunsbury are worried about speeding vehicles. With your support the Parish Council has joined Community Speedwatch to tackle this danger. We need volunteers. You will be properly trained to use the calibrated speed gun, just like the police use. We can't (and don't want to) fine motorists we find speeding but they will get a warning letter from the police as a reminder. We will also get signs reminding people to slow down and interactive devices that will display the speed of a vehicle for drivers to see. All designed to educate and make drivers aware of speeding in our community. And evidence collected from Speedwatch can be used by the Parish Council in any discussions with the County Council over possible traffic calming methods.

We need your help

We need adult volunteers to help with West Hunsbury Community Speedwatch.

Training will take place on Saturday 21st April 2018 at Caroline Chisholm School 9:30am - 12:15pm. West Hunsbury will take possession of the equipment on 28th April and will have it for alternate weeks over a 6 week period.

Please volunteer by email or
