Speed Monitoring Boards
York Region can place a SpeedWATCH board along Regional roads to monitor excessive speeding. Residents can promote safe driving in their neighbourhood by requesting a SpeedWATCH board. The board measures the speed of passing vehicles and displays it as they pass. This encourages drivers to stay within the speed limit. A SpeedWATCH board will stay in place for one week.
The speed of passing vehicles is stored and analyzed. If there is excessive speeding in the area, York Region will create a plan for speed limit enforcement.
Residents can report aggressive or dangerous driving by completing a Community Concerns incident form. Visit the York Regional Police website for information on Community Concerns.
Anyone can request a SpeedWATCH board.
Boards will only be placed on roads that are owned by York Region. Contact your local municipality if you want to request a board on a road that is not owned by York Region.
