Community Speed Watch   (19/12/2016)

Speeding in Deanshanger

Residents in Deanshanger are worried about speeding vehicles. With your support the Parish Council wants to join Community Speedwatch to tackle this danger.

If we join, we can get volunteers properly trained to use the calibrated speed gun, just like the police use. We can’t (and don’t want to) fine motorists we find speeding but they will get a warning letter from the police as a reminder.

We will also get signs reminding people to slow down and interactive devices that will display the speed of a vehicle for drivers to see. All designed to educate and make drivers aware of speeding in our community.

And evidence collected from Speedwatch can be used by the Parish Council in any discussions with the County Council over possible traffic calming methods.

We need your help

We need 10 adult volunteers to help with Deanshanger Community Speedwatch before we can join so we are asking for your help.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, can you please email the clerk on
