Cavendish Speedwatch

Suffolk Roadsafe Logo
The Community Speed Watch (CSW) initiative allows members of the community to address the issue of speeding by becoming actively involved in road safety, monitoring speeds at safe locations with speed detection equipment.

The aim of the initiative is NOT to catch as many speeding drivers as possible. It is to reduce speed in areas of concern, make drivers aware that excessive speed is socially unacceptable, re-educate drivers about the dangers of speeding, and address concerns from local residents about cars speeding through their neighbourhoods.

For more information, contact Stuart Letten on 01787 281858
