Catsfield Community SpeedWatch

Speedwatch

 

Does the speed of vehicles through our village concern you?

 

Recent recording of vehicle speeds though the village show that motorists are regularly travelling at 38-55 mph in the 30 mph limited area. Roughly one vehicle every two minutes exceeds the speed limit at speed of at least 38mph. There have also been several reports of near misses with pedestrians on the Zebra crossing and long standing reports of vehicles speeding past the school.

 

Catsfield now has a new speedwatch team of volunteers. We use police approved radar equipment to record the speed of vehicles travelling through the village and report these to the police via the Community Speedwatch website. Motorists reported all receive warning letters from the police and repeat offenders will be targeted for further action by the police.

 

We currently have 6 volunteers in our group and need more residents to join us. This will enable us to set up speed recording sessions on weekdays and more regularly.

 

Does this concern you? Can you spend one hour every one or two weeks to record speeding vehicles in our village? If so please follow the link below for more information about Community Speedwatch and how to join the Catsfield speedwatch group.
