Help needed to tackle speeding

Radar gun
Residents will be trained to use the police radar guns

More recruits are needed for a scheme in a suburb of Norwich where residents use radar guns to record vehicles speeding.

The Thorpe St Andrew scheme has eight volunteers who monitor vehicles in and around the village.

They are trained to use a radar gun and equipped to take part in speed reduction activities.

Letters are sent to the registered keepers of offending vehicles warning them to keep their speed down.

Persistent offenders become targets for police enforcement action.

Thorpe St Andrew community speed watch scheme was launched last November, as part of a road safety campaign.
