Charlbury Community Speedwatch launched

Have you noticed the roadside posters?

Did you see a group in hi-viz jackets on The Slade on Wednesday 12th between 5 & 6 pm?

Hopefully you weren't one of the 206 (of 414) drivers we recorded driving at more than 30 mph? One of you may be the driver recorded at the highest speed of 52 mph.

Community Speedwatch is a national project supported by the Police that works with local communities to monitor and deter speeding in their towns and villages. Our project is supported by Charlbury Town Council, by funding equipment and insurance and we have 14 volunteer residents who will be monitoring traffic speeds around the town. The project is a response to the many concerns raised by residents about speeding in the town, both in surveys and through this website.

The statistical data that is collected will be provided to the Town Council to inform traffic management and the Neighbourhood Plan. The registration numbers of speeding drivers are collected and then recorded on to the Police database by Thames Valley Police (TVP). TVP carry out a follow up to warn the drivers that their vehicle has been reported as speeding.

Volunteers will be at the roadside over the coming months at selected sites around Charlbury. If you are interested in getting involved please contact Jim Holah on
