Volunteers needed for Community SpeedWatch in Gawsworth Ward

This scheme allows the public to get actively involved in monitoring the speed of vehicles travelling through their neighbourhood. It is used in areas where speeding has been identified as a priority.

Community Speedwatch (CSW) is a locally driven initiative where active members of the community join together with the support of the Police to monitor speeds of vehicles using speed detection devices. Vehicles exceeding the speed limit are referred to the Police with the aim of educating drivers to reduce their speeds.

Speeding continues to be a concern for many communities in both rural and urban environments.
Volunteers receive appropriate training, and are supported by Local Policing Unit staff. The scheme aims to cater for the problem of real or perceived speed related offending, and through partnership with the community it is to be used in circumstances that are necessary, justifiable and proportionate in order to:

  • Reduce death and injury on the roads
  • Improve the quality of life for local communities
  • Reduce the speed of vehicles to the speed limit
  • Increase public awareness of inappropriate speed

Speedwatch activity is not about interfering with neighbours' behaviour; it is a proactive solution to improve the safety and quality of life for everyone in the community.

Gawsworth Ward hope to get enough volunteers to cover the whole ward, not just your parish area.

For more details please email macclesfield.lpu.@cheshire.pnn.police.uk, and mark your email F.A.O. PCSO Julia Short.
