Borrow a speed indicating device for your area

If you're part of a local community group, you could borrow a speed indicating device to use in your neighbourhood.

The device shows the speed of vehicles as they approach and either a smiley face, or a frowning face if they are speeding. You can keep the device for up to two weeks to use in your local area. We’ll also provide you with training and other resources to support you.  

Vehicles which are speeding will not be prosecuted but we've found that using a speed indicating device reduces their speed.

Who can request a device?

Local community groups such as parish councils or residents groups can request to use the device. If you want to know more or are interested in using the device in your area, read our speed indicating device blog External link or contact us on
