Thetford’s Community Speed Watch team are looking for volunteers
A community scheme which helps to make the roads safer is calling for more people to get involved.
The Community Speed Watch team in Thetford are seeking more volunteers to join them to help to continue to monitor the speed of vehicles.
Community Speed Watch is a national initiative which started 10 years ago.
Members of local communities join with the support of the police to monitor speeds of vehicles using speed detection devices.
If volunteers catch someone several times, speeders get a visit from a police officer.
