Frome Rural PACT Priority – Speeding within our rural villages.

Agreed: 06 May 2016

Added by Michael Storey on 12 May 2016 at 08:36

Speeding in the villages on both rural beats of Frome has been highlighted as a priority. The Speeding causes safety concerns amongst the communities. We have many active Community speed watch schemes in operation in the villages.

  • Saturday 03 September 2016
    Please be aware that some of our rural villages have no active community speed watch schemes running. Some have stopped due to lack of volunteers. Community Speed Watch gives local people the ability to actively get involved in road safety. Community Speed Watch is a partnership between the Community, the Police and Local Authorities. A Speed Watch consists of local residents, who are willing to volunteer a small amount of time each week to monitor speeds with speed detection equipment. If you feel that you have time to volunteer to Community Speed Watch, please contact your local Neighbourhood Policing Team who will assist in the implementation of a Community Speed Watch scheme in your community.
