Community Speed Watch - Help make Raunds safer

We need your help! Please volunteer!

Many local residents are worried about speeding vehicles around Raunds. With your support the Town Council is joining Community Speed Watch to tackle this danger.

Speed Watch 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 October 2022.

All volunteers must be trained in the use of equipment and safety information. A training session is required and easily accessible online.

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.

If you are interested in volunteering please email the Town Council at

Thank you
