Community Speedwatch – would it work in Bude/Kilk?

From Camelford police:
After being suspended due to Covid-19, Community Speedwatch has now re-started.
The volunteers in Camelford have been out on six occasions and 94 vehicles were found to be speeding within Camelford.
Warning letters are being sent by the police to the registered keepers. The fastest two vehicles were recorded at 47 and 57 mph, but the most common speed recorded was 36 mph.
On Wednesday 19th May, PCSO DODD went out with one volunteer and monitored the speed of vehicles in Boscastle.
Unfortunately, details were placed onto Facebook in an attempt to get potential volunteers to come along. No potential volunteers came along to see how Community Speedwatch works and only 3 cars were recorded as speeding, all at 37 mph. Another session will take place in Boscastle, details of this will be given to the Parish Councils in Boscastle and Tintagel and to potential volunteers in the Boscastle and Tintagel areas, but hopefully advance notice will not go onto Facebook.
Volunteers in Marshgate, St Teath and Warbstow are hopefully going out monitoring the speeds of vehicles in the near future.
PCSO DODD is keen to set up Community Speedwatch in the Bude and Kilkhampton areas and training sessions will take place in those areas in the near future.
If anyone wants to volunteer to assist with Community Speedwatch in the Bude or Camelford Policing areas then please contact PCSO DODD by E Mail camelford@devonandcornwall.pnn.police.uk
Volunteers being seen monitoring the speed of traffic and letters being sent out definitely slows traffic down.
