Information sent on behalf of West Mids Police

Dear Citizen
Are you a resident of Monkspath and Hillfield who is concerned about speeding. We are looking for volunteers to become members of a speedwatch group as we have had recent complaints of speeding on Monkspath Hall road. We have some volunteers lined up but need a minimum number before we can carry on.

Community Speedwatch is a community driven road safety initiative which empowers Community volunteers to address their concerns about inappropriate traffic speed around their places of work and/or residence, with the support of the police.

West Midlands Police Community Speedwatch scheme will involve trained volunteers from the community monitoring the speeds of vehicles with approved speed detection devices. Where vehicle speeds are found to be inappropriate, the police will either; stop the motorist and deliver a road side intervention with the support of collaborative partners, or a notice is sent to the drivers by the police with the aim of encouraging them to reduce their speed when driving in the future. The purpose is to reduce harm and the fear of harm, while improving overall road user behaviour on the West Midlands road network.

West Midlands Police will support volunteers in compliance with this guidance and will provide relevant training and advice to ensure the initiative is conducted safely, to address the needs of identified speed related community issues. It should be noted that community members wishing to sign up to the West Midlands Police Community Speedwatch scheme will be required to follow the guidance within this document or their involvement will not be recognised as being compliant and further action may take place.

West Midlands Police Community Speedwatch Scheme is used in circumstances that are necessary, reasonable and proportionate, in order to;

Reduce death and injury on the roads.
Improve the quality of life for local communities.
Reduce traffic noise and pollution in local communities.
Increase public awareness of inappropriate speed.
Increase engagement opportunities with local communities.
Increase public confidence with speeding concerns.

Please contact me if you feel that this is something you can do.
