Community Speed Watch

Lincolnshire’s Community Speedwatch scheme has been running in the county since 2014 with over 170 parishes in Lincolnshire taking part to date.

Speed Sign - Check Your Speed

The scheme is designed to enable local communities to tackle their own speeding issues using highly visible ‘passive’ notices and ‘reactive’ speed indicating devices (or SIDs). Both types of speed warnings can be used within either 30 mph or 40 mph speed limits and are intended to be temporary to avoid driver complacency.

Parish councils or meetings are responsible for purchasing their own signs and notices; and rotating them around approved locations within their parish. Typically metal Highways lamp posts are used for both signs and notices. SIDs are mounted and secured onto metal fixing brackets for ease of movement between locations. Passive Notices are attached using simple cable ties.

Parish councils and meetings are also able to purchase adhesive wheelie bin stickers for 30mph and 40mph speed limit roads at a cost of 50p per sticker.

Parishes councils interested in the scheme can contact Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership to request further information and an application form. A fee of £40 per application is payable for processing and to carry out any necessary surveys by an appropriate County Council Highways department. Each parish taking part in the scheme can claim an initial 6 free passive notices and further passive notices are available to purchase at a cost of £10 each.

Reactive SID devices are purchased direct from the supplier once sites have been approved by Highways.

Contact Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership on 01522 805800 or email for information.
