Speed Watch

Speed Watch is an educational program that reminds drivers to be aware of their vehicle’s actual speed. We concentrate our efforts in the highest risk areas of Town - school and playground zones. We do not set up when a police or photo radar unit is operating in the area.

Our volunteers set up this large sandwich board and a speed limit reminder sign intended to remind drivers of the speed limit and to advertise our volunteers’ presence ahead. The speed board itself has a radar unit on top, a large area to display the vehicle’s speed in red LED lights and a sign advising drivers what the displayed numbers are.

Our volunteers do not have the authority to stop a motorist or to issue speeding tickets. Our goal is to educate drivers and protect the public, especially our children.
