Community Speed Watch

Community Speed Watch (CSW) is a scheme which gives local people the power to help reduce traffic speeds and improve the quality of life in their community.

Speeding is a real problem in our communities and by training as CSW volunteers; local residents have the opportunity to make their roads safer.

Volunteers are provided with special equipment and trained by police officers in the use of hand-held speed devices so that they can record the speed of passing vehicles.

Motorists caught speeding by volunteers are sent a warning letter from the police. Further action is taken against persistent offenders, who will receive a visit from Wiltshire Police.

Our aim is to ensure that Shrewton gets a reputation for catching speeding motorists. We are a small but enthusiastic team and deploy randomly around the village at locations where we can see the traffic and catch the Speeding motorist. If you are interested then please get in touch with the Shrewton CSW coordinator below:

  1. It would be helpful if you were to list speeds recorded through the village, especially with comments upon the difference with your camera and without.
