Transport for London, working in partnership with the Metropolitan Police

road safety initiative aimed at reducing speeding in residential areas.

 

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 Wandsworth’s roads, which the Council supports. It is led and
organised by the MPS.
