Machen Community Speed Watch


The Community Speed Watch is a locally driven initiative where Volunteers of the Community join together with the support of Gwent Police and Go Safe to monitor speeds of vehicles using speed detection devices. Vehicles exceeding the speed limit are referred to the Police with the aim of educating drivers to reduce their speeds.

Volunteers receive appropriate training, and are supported by the Local Neighbourhood Policing Team. The Scheme aims to cater for the problem of real or perceived speed related offending, and through partnership with the Community it is to be used in circumstances that are necessary, justifiable and proportionate in order to:

  • Reduce death and injury on the roads;
  • Improve the quality of life for local communities;
  • Reduce the speed of vehicles to the speed limit;
  • Increase public awareness of inappropriate speed.

The Speed Watch activity is not about interfering with neighbours’ behaviour; it is a proactive solution to improve the safety and quality of life for everyone in the Community.

To become a Volunteer or for more information please email Cllr Amanda McConnell.
