Speedwatch schemes help community volunteers reduce excessive speeds on local roads.

Operating at the roadside in 20mph, 30mph and 40mph areas, volunteers monitor speeds using a speed indication device (SID). 

The owners of vehicles who've been repeatedly seen speeding or have been recorded at more than 50% over the limit are sent a letter of advice.

The scheme aims to:

  • increase drivers’ perception of the risks from speeding and encourage them to slow down 
  • reduce collisions and the severity of injuries on local roads 
  • improve the quality of life for local communities.
