Are you concerned about speeding in the village?
Nottinghamshire Police are looking to re-introduce Community Speed Watch (CSW) schemes across Nottinghamshire to allow trained volunteers to address speeding concerns in their communities.
The aim of Community Speed Watch is to make motorists who speed through residential neighbourhoods aware of the impact their actions have on local residents, or the danger they pose to other road users and pedestrians.
Nottinghamshire Police have asked East Leake Parish Council to reach out to residents to gauge interest and decide whether we would like to be part of this scheme.
Each scheme requires a minimum of 3 volunteers who must be aged 18 years or over. Training will be given to volunteers by police, and all sites where the speed checks take place will be risk assessed for suitability.
After the initial training, the scheme will be run by a lead volunteer. The registrations of speeding vehicles will be passed to police who will send out warning letters and the data collected will also identify locations that can be followed up by police speed checks where enforcement can take place.
To register your interest in becoming of this scheme, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
