This activity is called Community Speedwatch in the rest of the country but Boris Johnson felt Community Roadwatch was less offensive to the motoring lobby. However we will call it by its proper name which is a good description of what it does — point a speed camera at drivers going too fast and then tick them off. Car-crushing would be nice but even finger-wagging is a start.
The police need civilian protection so the drivers don’t get too offensive. Bob Eva will be representing Southwark Cyclists and holding the gun on Sydenham Hill at the junction with Crescent Wood Road. PCSO Kevin Phillips (see pic) will be writing the numbers down with added tellings-off for using a phone while driving, going through no entry signs, jumping red lights. I could go on.
