What to do if you've received a Notice of Intended Prosecution (NIP) or a Community Speed Watch letter.
The scheme exists to:
Speed Watch volunteers use approved hand held radar equipment to check vehicle speeds and note down the registration number of any vehicles recorded going faster than the speed limit.
Details are passed to the CSW co-ordinator, who works for the police, to review the offences. The co-ordinator sends out warning letters to the registered keepers of the vehicles.
All CSW locations are risk assessed and approved by the police as suitable and safe.
If you'd like to get involved with the scheme or would like more information about it, please call the Community Engagement Co-ordinator on 01785 232 702 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you've received a Community Speed Watch letter you've been recorded as driving faster than the legal speed limits permitted on the road.
It's recommended that you read it carefully and take this as a warning that your driving is unsatisfactory.
Although you're not obliged in law to do anything, you would be well advised to consider what you can do to improve the standard of your driving to adhere to the speed limits.
