Charlbury Community Speedwatch, news & 2019 summary

The Charlbury CSW team had a busy 2019, carrying out a total of 57 sessions at various points around the town. In those sessions we checked the speed of 8,583 vehicles and notified 463 drivers to Thames Valley Police for follow up.  Whether it was our presence or just people learning to drive within the speed limit we're not sure, but overall, speeding vehicles reduced to 14%  of the total checked last year.

One of the worst locations for speeding was Woodstock Rd, so today we held our first session of 2020 with the support of TVP .  Drivers travelling in excess of 40 mph in the 30 mph zone were stopped and advised that had their speed been recorded by TVP, they would be rewarded with a £100 fine and 3 points on their license.
