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.
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.
