About the Program
Speed Watch is a community-led program that creates awareness about speeding in neighbourhoods.
Community volunteers encourage motorists to obey the speed limit by monitoring and recording the speeds of passing vehicles using a portable photo radar unit with a digital display screen. Drivers can see the travel speed of their vehicle on the display board, motivating them to slow down if they are traveling over the limit. They will also get a warning letter in the mail.
The Edmonton Police Service runs the program in partnership with the Office of Traffic Safety and concerned residents.
Many Edmontonians are concerned about how speeding affects the safety and livability of their communities. The program helps communities take action against unsafe motorists in neighbourhoods around school zones, playgrounds, and other areas where speeding may be an issue.
Speed Watch volunteers help their community by promoting traffic safety and gathering important data for the police.
• Volunteers work in teams of 2.
• 1 member of each team must have an Alberta driver's license.
• You must be at least 18 years old to participate.
