SPEED WATCH UPDATE

 

...CONTINUED

Speed Watch Update - Nov 2018

Speed Watch has been operating in Coxheath since June 2015, with deployments at various locations throughout the Village. During last month 87 vehicles were recorded speeding and during the last year 775 vehicles were recorded.

All the registered owners of vehicles detected for a 2nd time or more during speed watch deployments are written to by the Police with letters of advice regarding the speed recorded. However, those detected at more than 50% over the limit, 45 mph, will be written to on the first detection. Speed watch is aimed at education rather than prosecution but the Police will retain details logged for a period of 12 months.

Speed watch will continue throughout 2018. New members would be welcomed to the group to help with this important work. Please contact Richard Webb at richardwebb@maidstone.gov.uk if you are interested.
