Is coming to you. As with many other schemes springing up across the country, where speeding is taking place or "perceived to be taking place" by the concerned locals.You can guess who and what horrible types they will be, togged up in Hi Vis jackets, kitted with radar guns and sent off in groups to monitor evil motorists. Yes, the ultimate kick for power crazed anti-car NIMBY's and lentil eaters. It is a bad joke, an institutional form of the dummy speed camera in the front garden or false camera signs. Funded by Speed Camera partnerships to distract attention from their antics and put mugs into the firing line. Only a matter of time before one of then gets filled in. OK plant them outside a school like a glorified crossing helper and it just might do some good. (Inspired thought for a reality TV show: Stick 'em on a sink estate and see how long they last). However, suppose this might help to bring the Government speed control freakery thing into even greater disrepute. VOLUNTEERS in Surrey Heath will become the eyes and ears of the police this year as a new road safety scheme is introduced. From January 23, teams of residents concerned about the threat of speeding motorists will be manning speed guns to log the details of those travelling above the limit. The scheme, dubbed Community Speed Watch, is aimed at reducing collisions on the borough’s roads and is to be adopted by Woking and Runnymede boroughs later in the year if it is successful. The scheme has been piloted in Spelthorne, Elmbridge and Epsom and Ewell. Surrey Police needs at least six volunteers, who will receive training and equipment, to man speedwatches for a minimum of one hour a week. Superintendent Nick Dove said: “We have identified through police and partners that speeding is a major concern in many areas and we are working to reduce the incidence of road traffic collisions and the severity of casualties. This scheme is an effort to re-educate drivers about the dangers of speeding and to help stamp it out. “The project will only work with the help of the public so we need many volunteers in the community to come forward to help. The volunteers will work in pairs at specific locations and use the specialist equipment to record the details of offending vehicles and the speeds at which they were travelling. Offenders will be identified from data provided by the volunteers and will be sent a “yellow letter” highlighting the event and asking for co-operation in the future. Repeat offenders will receive two letters before enforcement proceedings begin.
