Speed Watch

What is Speed Watch?

Speed Watch is an educational program designed to raise public awareness of the actual speeds drivers are traveling. It is hoped that drivers will choose to voluntarily slow down to the posted speed limit when they see their actual speed posted on the reader boards.

The Speed Watch program is conducted in partnership with the RCMP, citizen volunteers and ICBC.

Speed Watch checks are operated using portable radar equipment and an electronic digital board. Volunteers monitor speeds along main corridors, neighborhoods, particularly school and playground zones.

This information is then passed onto the Police along with license numbers of those traveling in excess over the posted speed limit. As a result, vehicle owners may receive warning letters in the mail.
