Support Speed Watch

Concerned at the problem of speeding in the village, a number of villagers are keen to see the village establish a Speed Watch Team such as that already active or under way in some other Essex villages and towns.

Working in pairs, after full training has been given, Speed Watch volunteers will typically be allocated a short shift each month during which time they will measure the speed of offenders and provide a record of those exceeding the limits to Essex Police. Essex Police will then issue warning letters to the owners of the offending vehicles and if two such warnings are issued will actively target the offender themselves.

If you think this is a good idea and want to become involved then please contact John Ford who will co-ordinate responses. He can be contacted through the Neighbourhood Watch webpage here.
