Community Speedwatch

27/07/2022

The Parish Council were approached by residents regarding starting a Community Speedwatch. Following a presentation from the Thames Valley Police (TVP) Community Speedwatch Co-Ordinator, we will be trying to set up a Community Speedwatch Group for Padbury. TVP have overhauled the system in the last couple of years. As well as taking action over persistent speeding issues, TVP use the data to enforce other road traffic matters such as no insurance or road tax.

This will depend on residents volunteering. All volunteers will need to complete online training, followed by a test which in total takes approximately 40 minutes. There is then some further onsite training in the use of the equipment.  A minimum of three volunteers is required per group to operate a handheld device. If you wish to volunteer, please contact Pam (Parish Clerk) via: Email: padburyparishcouncil@gmail.com or Tel: 07961 827302.
