Speedwatch starts in Banwell
PUBLISHED: 15:00 01 May 2011
SEVEN locations have been approved for a volunteer-led speed monitoring scheme in Banwell.
Eight residents have joined the police-backed community Speedwatch team in a bid to slow traffic down through the village. Using detection equipment, the members will monitor speeds and pass on numberplate details of persistent offenders to the police.
The offenders will then receive warning letters about their driving.
