Enforcement and Community

05-07-21 COMMUNITY SPEEDWATCH-13

The partnership has adopted the four E’s approach (Education, Enforcement, Engineering and Evaluation) to reduce casualties on Warwickshire’s Roads.

 

Warwickshire Police choose to educate around road safety first to help change behaviour and to enforce where appropriate to help keep all road users safe.

 

Warwickshire Police also supports National Police Chief Council national road safety campaigns aimed at improving road safety for bikers and cyclists, and other vulnerable road users such as pedestrians and horse riders.

 

As well as the ‘Fatal 4’ – speeding, using a handheld mobile, drink or drug driving and not wearing a seatbelt, other operations that Warwickshire Police will support during 2021 include No Insurance Week, Brake Road Safety Week, Commercial Vehicle Week, Tyre Safety Week, Project Edward. 

 

The Commercial Vehicle unit carry out a number of Operations such as Tramline and Safer Loads to improve the safety of commercial vehicles on major routes through the county.

 

There are many ways the public can get involved and help make our roads safer.  One way to make a difference is to volunteer. The Special Constabulary who are volunteers, provide many hours of policing to support road safety operations in the county. 

 

Community Speed Watch is run by volunteers across the county supported by the police, and Op Snap allows members of the public to upload video footage of moving traffic offences, this can be found on our report offences pages.
