Community Road Watch Lewisham


The main objective of the scheme is to reduce the speed of vehicles in a location which either has a history of collisions, or where a community concern has been raised. The scheme is run in partnership between police and TFL

Sessions will be planned in advance and may be either arranged directly with individual volunteers or in areas with lots of volunteers will be an invitation to anyone available to participate. Please note that volunteers are not obliged to stay for the duration of the session and they can leave at any time. Sessions last 1-2 hours. The scheme is open to anyone over 18


What is the volunteer role during this Community Roadwatch event?

Volunteer’s will stand on the pavement wearing a high visibility jacket. They will use the equipment to monitor the speed of passing vehicles, and will note down the details of those exceeding the guidelines. Volunteers will be accompanied by a Police Community Support Officer throughout the session.


On the event day

Volunteers will be asked to sign a disclaimer before starting the event. Police will then supply them with a fluorescent jacket. The officers will then go through the process with them. At the event volunteers will be shown how to use the speed gun and what details of the vehicles need to be recorded on the record sheet.


What happens after the event

Police will send the offender vehicle details to the RoadSafe London Team who will then send a warning letter to the registered keeper. In an event where by an offender has been picked up more than twice no further letters

will be sent and they will be considered for targeted enforcement.
