This article is from the area I live in. Thought I`d put it up here and guage the communities view. Personally, I`m aghast at the thought of this and can forsee some real problems.

VOLUNTEERS are being sought to operate speed guns in a bid to cut speeding on roads in and around Kinghorn, Burntisland and Auchtertool.


A pilot scheme called Speedwatch is to be set up in the area in response to villagers complaining about the number of vehicles doing well over the speed limits.

Members of the public will be trained to operate the hand-held devices.

They will then be sent out in teams of three to take details of speeding motorists.

They will have no powers to stop vehicles but the information they collect will be passed on to Fife Police for them to follow up.

It is vigilante. There is an oxymoron here. Where is that line drawn?
