What is Community Speedwatch?

A Community SpeedWatch group can be set up where the road is governed by either a 20, 30 or 40 mile per hour speed limit.

Local residents are given training by Avon & Somerset Police and issued with equipment to monitor speeds (they do not use recording equipment and no data is saved). The data is then passed to the police who will send a warning letter to all the drivers who are observed speeding.

The Police will take further action against persistent and high-end speed offenders.

It only takes a few volunteers to set up a new group or you can choose to join a group that is already established.

Please email CommunitySpeedWatch@avonandsomerset.police.uk to enquire about setting up a new group or joining one of the groups already established in Brislington.
