Bath Chronicle: Bathampton Community Speedwatch Volunteers Use the Pocket Radar Classic Model to Monitor Speeding Motorists

by Tyler Scaturro January 30, 2018

Pocket Radar’s Classic model is utilized for many applications worldwide.  One such application would be traffic safety and vehicle monitoring.  While traffic and safety professionals have used radar to monitor the speeds of vehicles and bicycles for many years, Pocket Radar now offers easy Doppler speed measurement to these same professionals, as well ordinary citizens concerned about unsafe speeds.

Bathampton Community Speedwatch, a team of about eight volunteers, launched just over a year ago to highlight the danger caused by drivers flouting the law in the village.

Here is an excerpt from a January 29, 2018 Bath Chronicle news report in the UK centered around, “What happened when we joined Bathampton Community SpeedWatch for a speed check.”

Figures from speed check sessions between December 1, 2016 and November 11, 2017 show that the group recorded 650 motorists driving over the speed limit in the three different locations.

Almost 400 of these were caught speeding along Bathampton Lane, with the fastest driver recorded at 38mph – almost twice the legal limit for the road.

A further 109 motorists were recorded above the threshold on Warminster Road near Down Lane and 155 were caught speeding outside number 82 on the same road.

The fastest vehicle registered along Warminster Road, which is a 30mph zone, was driving at 47mph, while the average speed along the road is 40.3mph near Down Lane.
