Your Local Scheme
Tidbury Green speedwatch. We are all volunteers and work in teams of three about once a week. We have a speed gun and note down any driver who exceeds 37mph. The information is then forwarded to the police who will send out the relevant letters.

I have been the co-ordinator since the beginning. The reason for getting involved was the speed of traffic through the village. The improvement has been slow, but the speed of cars has definitely come down. At the beginning it was quite common to record speeds of 50mph plus, while now the majority is between 37 and low 40mph.
