Stokesby has joined the growing number of villages that now has its own Community Speed Watch.


What Is Community Speed Watch?

Put simply, speed monitoring is carried out by trained volunteers from the community, with follow-up work on education and enforcement by Norfolk Safety Camera Partnership, Norfolk Police and your Local Authority.


Initially, letters are sent to registered keepers of offending vehicles asking for their assistance in keeping speeds down in your community, with persistent offenders targeted for police enforcement. Local Authority Road Safety staff can help with supporting initiatives, including the use of Speed Awareness Messaging Devices (SAM’s).


Speed watch signs have now been put up in Stokesby warning motorists that the scheme exists hoping that this will reduce the number of people who persistently speed through our village.


Occasionally the volunteers will be joined by police officers who can issue speeding tickets on the spot.
