Suffolk Police back community speed watch scheme

Almost 10,000 drivers have been caught speeding by volunteers across Suffolk over the past 3 years.

Although there's been some criticism of the community speed watch scheme for not leading to prosecutions, Suffolk police say it does act as a deterrent and reduces the number of repeat offenders.

Although drivers caught by community speed watch cannot be prosecuted, they can be sent letters warning them of their behaviour.

PC Tony Wernham of Suffolk Constabulary said this has led to a reduction in repeat offences.
