London Borough of Croydon

Community Roadwatch logo

Transport for London, the Metropolitan Police Service and Croydon Council are working together to reduce collisions on Croydon's roads. Research has shown that speed is often a contributory factor in road collisions.

Community Roadwatch is designed to support wider police activity, working with local communities to make people aware of the dangers of travelling too fast on Croydon's roads.

How it works

Volunteers will record details of vehicles travelling at 10% plus 2mph* above the limit. At no time will an attempt be made to stop or signal drivers to slow down.

*with the exception of 25mph in a 20 zone.

Where does Community Roadwatch take place?

Community Roadwatch focuses on residential roads, and is now available in every London Borough.

Improving road safety

Gives residents the opportunity to work with local police teams, and use speed detection equipment to deter speeding in their communities.
