Speedwatch – Please join us

We are currently recruiting for volunteers – we are a small and friendly team who spend an hour at a time on the roads of Winterborne Whitechurch with a speed tracking device. We record the speed of cars passing through the village which are 20% or more above the speed limit, then pass this information to the police. This is then used by the police to contact the drivers.

We have recorded speeds of 56mph in our 30mph zones.

Occasionally we are joined by Dorset Police on the roadside (“Truecam”) who not only contact the drivers but also issue points and fines.

We really want to keep this scheme going as it is a high visibility reminder that we care about the speeding issue in our village, but in order to do so we need volunteers.

Please contact the Clerk for more information.
