Community Speed Watch in North Dorset
FOLLOWING numerous complaints about vehicles speeding in the county, Dorset Police have embarked upon a Community Speed Watch programme. These complaints have often "topped the poll" at the various PACT (Partners and Communities Together) meetings held throughout the county
Over the last month two teams of volunteers from the Shaftesbury and Gillingham Home Watch Association have been trained to carry out a Community Speed Watch in designated areas of Shaftesbury, Gillingham and outlying villages.
The teams comprising four members, suitably attired in high viz jackets and with warning signs either side of each location will be able to check the speed, with the use of a pocket radar device, of oncoming vehicles and register their detail if found to be exceeding the local speed limit. This information is then relayed to the police headquarters and a letter sent to the offender advising of their speeding.
It is our chance to work with the police in reducing accidents and sometimes the loss of life due to speeding traffic. It will also act as a deterrent against speeding.
