Speedwatch scheme makes a difference

Dorset Echo: CAMPAIGN SUCCESS: Speedwatch volunteers  Barry Preedy, right, with Chrissy Brooks and Robin Potter CAMPAIGN SUCCESS: Speedwatch volunteers Barry Preedy, right, with Chrissy Brooks and Robin Potter

SPEEDING motorists appear to be getting the message as Dorchester’s first community speedwatch scheme makes its presence felt.

Volunteers have been out in Herringston Road recording the speed of passing motorists over recent weeks in the first initiative of its type in the county town.

Co-ordinator Barry Preedy said that since the scheme started in April it has now attracted 11 volunteers and they are able to spend three to four sessions a week out in the road, which has in the past been plagued by speeding drivers.

Signs have also been placed at either end of the road warning motorists they are entering a community speedwatch area.

Mr Preedy said in the first couple of months the volunteers, who go out in teams of three, have recorded 37 motorists driving in excess of 36mph – with the highest speed recorded 46mph.

However, they have also been recorded volumes of traffic with up to 280 vehicles recorded in a 45-minute period and Mr Preedy said overall he thinks the number of speeding vehicles has gone down since the scheme began.

He said: “We think it’s had an effect on traffic in terms of speed.

“It’s always difficult to judge but certainly people tell us they think they have noticed the difference and when we are doing it we are getting a lot of encouraging support from people who think it’s helpful.”

The volunteers pass on the details of speeding motorists to the police and a letter is sent out to them, warning the driver that they have been recorded driving in excess of the speed limit.

Mr Preedy said the scheme had been well supported by the town’s Safer Neighbourhood police team and Dorchester Town Council.

The volunteers were given the equipment for the scheme by the police for a trial period and they are now hopeful the town council will agree to fund new equipment when it has to be returned to the police so the scheme can continue in the long term.

The town council has previously agreed in principle to support community speedwatch projects in the town.

Mr Preedy said he would certainly recommend the scheme to any other areas of the town where people are thinking of setting up their own speedwatch group or have a problem with speeding traffic.

He said: “If they have got a problem with the speed of traffic I think it does have a significant effect.”

Unusual for me to disagree, CJ, but having nearly been killed by a speeding motorist who was presumably following the racing line as he approached a blind bend, several weeks ago, i'm afraid i support these busybodies 100%.

I have no issue with speed checks in built up areas however I do take issue to self appointed busy bodies with nothing better to do than spy on their fellow citizens. Last time I checked speed enforcement was a police responsibility so has the work been sub contracted out of the free?
I would certainly not hesitate to tell this lot where to stick their monitoring equipment and high vis jackets. :-)

Totally agree with cj07589 on this!
I also suspect one the instigators of this will be sitting well out the way of any flak more than likely baking.
Absolute fools people like this putting themselves in the firing line,it wont help them or the communities they live in.
The police are paid by very same do-gooders to do this job.

While this may be a laudible effort - perhaps they would be better positioned on the A37 between Dorchester and Yeovil catching not only those speeding motorists (at no point can you do more than 60 along there though many do) but also the dangerous driving (dangerous overtaking/tailgatin
g) that I experience every time I use that road (frequently) no matter what time of day. That road is a death trap simply because of the number of moron drivers that use it.

It is effectively suedo policing on the cheap, wonder why we even bother paying taxes and poll taxes anymore it does not appear to being spent on the correct areas like upholding the law and its enforcement.
What's next volunteers to run local government services?

Would you pay then an extra 5p per £ on your tax bill to pay for the police to do it? Taxpayers money only goes so far - especially as there are less of us earning to pay tax anyway. And,if not, what would you cut - benefits, family allowance, certain NHS Services, Tax Credits, Emergency Services, etc, etc - to fund all these extra police to stand on street corners hoping that a speeding motorist comes their way? Or would you rather volunteers do it - at no cost to the taxpayer - especially if it achieves results.

That's not the point, we pay enough bloody taxes in this country to expect the state and its to manage itself competently. No I do not want unaccountable self appointed busy bodies to police our roads that is what the police are paid for! Would you want a volunteer to undertake heart surgery on you?

A volunteer doing Heart Surgery and one taking speeds on the road is hardly a good analogy - one is a life and death situation, the other isn't and you hardly need 7 years training to hold something toward a car and take it's speed. What a ridiculous analogy. No I don't understand your point at all - money has a HUGE relevance and the mere threat of someone taking your speed may be enough for some (it clearly seems to be working). And if you weren't speeding then you wouldn't be worried would you?

I've become very much more aware of speeding motorists and others driving dangerously or otherwiose with little care for other road users since moving into the countryside & regularly walking to town and back. Some cyclists too, it has to be said.

Fortunately the idiots appear to be in the minority but anything done to help prevent them 'running loose' gets my vote.

Heres the scenario,
Mr A and Mr B live on the same estate or a couple of roads away from each other,
Mr A gets clocked driving at slightly over the limit, and who has clocked and reported him Mr B.
A great way to have peace and harmony in a community when you have citizens basically causing problems for other citizens in their own communitys,all this does is breed resentment and cause trouble.
Have it your way, the powers that be must be laughing their black socks off!
Enjoy your cake!
