Speed Ed – UCKFIELD

April 4th 2024 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am

To support the Community SpeedWatch Programme (CSW), its Coordinators, and Parish Councils, Sussex Safer Roads Partnership (SSRP) conducts sessions called Speed Education (Speed ED). This educational intervention is valued by the Community Safety Teams as an excellent engagement tool to combat inappropriate speeding. Speed ED sessions support community engagement and address residential concerns, alongside providing support to CSW groups, and contributing to Operation activity.

Approximately 1 in 3 Killed and Seriously Injured on Sussex roads is related to inappropriate speeding, highlighting the need for further intervention in this area, to reduce the number of individuals killed and seriously injured on Sussex roads.

Speed Education is a programme which was first implemented in 2021, with a limited number of sessions planned, due to scoping the innovative concept. The purpose of these sessions is to support local Community SpeedWatch (CSW) groups in Sussex, by pulling drivers into a suitable location for further education, when inappropriate, due to speeding having been detected by an officer. This is with the support of Police Officers from the Casualty Reduction Team (CRT) and/ or Police Officers from other departments such as local Neighbour Police Teams (NPT) and Roads Policing Unit (RPU).

This session was conducted out of Uckfield, Fire Station; with the support of our Partners at East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service.
