Speedwatch along the Roman

31 July, 2022 | Local action

I organised for a team of local Police to come to Bow and lead a Speedwatch event along Roman Road.

The Police team brought a camera device which can be used to see the speed of passing vehicles. If a car was driving too fast, another person was prepped with a clipboard and wrote down the number-plate, make and model of the car. Drivers will receive a warning letter the first time they are caught and then more severe penalties if they get caught more times.

We saw about 40 speeding drivers in under an hour!

I plan to hold regular monthly speedwatch events from the Autumn. Do get in touch if you would like to join us at one of them!
