A new speed watch scheme for concerned Hertfordshire citizens is now accepting applications.
The trial programme, organised by Police and Crime Commissioner of Hertfordshire David Lloyd, anyone living on a road which has a 20mph speed limit (a fair few of which are in Chorleywood) can volunteer to form ‘DriveSafe’ groups with like-minded neighbours.
Participants will get training from officers to monitor the roads and record the details of any vehicles breaking the speed limit. These will then be used to send advisory letters to the owners.
Volunteers will get their own Speed Indicator Devices to use and measure the traffic, with support coming from Herts police officers on site and through the commissioner’s office, who will be sending the letters.
Anyone applying to the scheme must have backing from at least ten other residents, with four others also happy to volunteer in the roadside monitoring. Groups will operate in five trial areas in twelve sessions between spring and autumn this year.
To sign up, visit www.hertscommissioner.org/community-drivesafe-scheme-hertfordshire and fill out the application before the date of February 28.
