Is speeding an issue in your area? Can you help us prevent it?—Sussex Police, 20 February 2019

National initiative where active members of local communities join with the support of police to monitor speeds of vehicles using speed detection devices.

Community SpeedWatch (CSW) is seeking more volunteers in a bid to continue to address its four main aims:

To reduce death and injuries on the roads;
To reduce the speed of vehicles to the speed limit;
To increase public awareness of inappropriate speed;
To improve the quality of life for local communities.

CSW is a national initiative where active members of local communities join with the support of police to monitor speeds of vehicles using speed detection devices.

Vehicles exceeding the speed limit are referred to the police, with the aim of educating motorists to reduce their speeds.

In cases where education is blatantly ignored and evidence of repeat or excessive offences is collated (even across county borders), enforcement and prosecution will follow.

In 2017, a total of 937 speed-related collisions occurred in Sussex (figures for 2018 not currently available), which resulted in 17 fatalities and 223 serious injuries.

Volunteers receive appropriate training and are supported by local police prevention teams.
