Community Speed watch

Speeding continues to be a priority. Your local Neighbourhood officers PCSO WILLIAM MORTIMER and LOUISE PERRY are regularly conducting high-visibility speeding checks throughout the villages around Frome. The aim is to deter speeding through the residential areas and to educate repeat offenders.

The Neighbourhood Team work closely with the Community Speedwatch groups who conduct regular speeding checks in their community.

How SpeedWatch works

A Community SpeedWatch can be set up in any village, small town, or urban area, governed by either a 20, 30 or 40 miles per hour speed limit.

 

A team of local residents who are willing to volunteer a small amount of time each week are trained and issued with speed detection equipment to monitor speeds.

 

Vehicles observed speeding will be sent a warning letter along with advice to help change their driving behaviour.

 

Further action will be taken by the police against persistent and high end speed offenders as well as targeting individual locations.
