Community Speed Watch smFunding is now in place for the Whitchurch Speedwatch after a successful grant application was made by the Town Council. The police have provided the £1000 grant, necessary to help purchase the equipment required.

There is now a call for volunteers to help with a local scheme.

Speedwatch has been very successful as a deterrent to drivers who break the legal speed limits. A recently commenced scheme in Overton and others around the County are reported as being very successful.
Volunteers record speeds using a SID (Speed Indicator device) and the details are sent to the police who issue warnings as appropriate.

To volunteer please contact the Town Clerks at the Town Hall.

    It would be VERY useful if these volunteers were also encouraged to log and report other incidents of anti-social vehicle incidents such as pavement parkers, illegal use of disabled bays, inappropriate parking on single/double yellow lines etc.
