Did you knowin the 20 – 30mph range, a reduction of 6mph is reported to result in a 40% reduction in road noise
Between 08.00 – 09.00 on 20.6.18, four volunteers performed a Community SpeedWatch (CSW) on Alfreton Road
Of 132 vehicles passing the location during the watch period 49% were speeding with 17 vehicles travelling between 35 mph – 40mph.
The Community Speed Watch Programme is performed by volunteers who live in the village and who try to regularly monitor the speed of vehicles travelling through. If you are able to help by volunteering or if you want to set up a Community Speedwatch around where you live please get in touch. It is easy to do and involves committing as little as an hour of your time when convenient to you.
The CSW is performed with delegated responsibility from Derbyshire Police, which provide the equipment and full training.
Although the locations may be changed, the CSW dates for 2018-19 posted on the PC Web Page (see opposite) will be carried out weather and volunteer number permitting.
