Droitwich police are calling for speed watch volunteers

Droitwich Editorial 31st Oct, 2022   0

DROITWICH police are calling for Community Speed Watch Volunteers to help catch cars driving over the limit.

Between six to eight volunteers will be needed to set up the group, and once training and equipment are given to the volunteers, they will be able to choose their speed-watching locations.

Cars caught speeding over the limit while a speed watch volunteer is on duty can receive warning letters, fines and, in worst-case scenarios, go to court if they are heavily over.

PC Rich Rees, said: “It is about empowering the community to work with us and to look after areas in terms of speeding – to help them tackle the problems they see in their community.”

Currently, there are successful speed-watching groups set in Crowle and Tibberton.
