Following a Public Meeting organised by St. Athan Community Council on 27th July 2021, it was decided to form a Community Speed Watch (CSW) Group with the aim of making local roads safer for everyone.
CSW is an educational scheme to help people reduce speeding traffic though our community. The scheme enables volunteers to raise awareness of the dangers of speeding and to help control the problem locally.
The initiative involves residents giving up some of their spare time. All volunteers, must be over 18 and will receive specialist training on how to use a speed gun to monitor the speed of traffic.
To become a CSW volunteer for St Athan Ward and take an active role in road safety please email St.email@example.com
Council Chairman, Roger Eustace said
“Speeding is always one of the mains concerns raised by local residents, and the Community Speed Watch scheme is a great way of helping to address the issue.”
“Such schemes work as a deterrent and help to get the message across that speeding drivers will not be tolerated in the community.”
“They also remind motorists that speed limits are there for a reason and must be adhered to.”
