Community Speedwatch

Cofton Hackett Parish Council seeks volunteers for a Community Speedwatch initiative.

Community Speedwatch is an educational scheme to help people reduce speeding traffic though their community. The scheme enables volunteers to work within their community to raise awareness of the dangers of speeding and to help control the problem locally.

Community Speedwatch incorporates poster campaigns and a pledge system linked to direct action using speed detection equipment all under the supervision of the County Council. The use of the radar devices will not lead to prosecution – drivers will get a letter from the police instead – but will help to underline the community’s commitment to reducing speed.

If you would like to volunteer please contact our Clerk at clerk@coftonhackettparishcouncil.gov.uk for more information. The closing date for volunteering is January 15th 2024.
