Community Speedwatch-Help make Raunds safer
We need your help! Please volunteer!
The Vision for Raunds told us that local residents are worried about speeding vehicles. With your support the Town Council is joining Community Speedwatch to tackle this danger.
Speedwatch trains volunteers to use the calibrated speed gun, just like the police use. We can't (and don't want to) fine motorists we find speeding but they will get a warning letter from the police as a reminder. We will have use of the equipment in April and May 2019.
All volunteers must be trained in the use of equipment and safety information. A training session will take place on March 23rd 2019 in Northampton. (If you have previously been trained you do not need to attend again)
We will also get signs reminding people to slow down and interactive devices that will display the speed of a vehicle for drivers to see. All designed to educate and make drivers aware of speeding in our community.
And evidence collected from Speedwatch can be used by the Town Council in any discussions with the County Council over possible traffic calming methods.
We need your help! We already have some fantastic volunteers willing to help but we need more!! We need adult volunteers to help with Raunds Community Speedwatch so we are asking for your help.
If you are interested then please reply to this post or email the Town Council at firstname.lastname@example.org
