Since discussing the busy A285 at the Village Meeting in May 2017, a few residents have asked the Parish Council about CSW which is an initiative that allows local people to monitor vehicle speeds using speed detection devices. Since then, the Parish Council has helped set up Duncton CSW group and we’re looking for volunteers.
Any vehicles recorded speeding as part of CSW is not enforceable, however Sussex Police will send warning letters to registered owners of any vehicles that meet the required threshold when driving over the set speed limit and if there is evidence of repeat or excessive offences, enforcement and prosecution will follow.
Volunteers will need to:
· Take the compulsory eLearning course (approx. 30 mins) and pass a multiple choice quiz at the end. The course can be retaken as many times as are needed.
· Be trained in the practical use of the group’s deployable equipment.
· Carry out speed monitoring as and when they can
This is a practical step that we as a village can take to help reduce excessive speeding and we welcome your thoughts and for volunteers to put themselves forward.
