Eddington Speedwatch

Residents are concerned about the increasing traffic in and around Eddington, especially near the primary school. On behalf of Axel Zeitler, who runs Speedwatch in Eddington, we are therefore calling for volunteers for the Community Speedwatch scheme, in which local residents actively get involved in monitoring the speed of vehicles travelling through Eddington.

Volunteers will be trained to use mobile speed indicator devices by the police. Speed measures will typically be taken by groups of 3 volunteers, who will meet for sessions of one hour. Number plates are recorded and those vehicles exceeding 24mph are reported to the police who either visit or write out to the registered owner.

If you are interested in becoming a Speedwatch volunteer for Eddington, please sign up here or contact the ERA here

The ERA will then contact you about the Speedwatch training.
