Speedwatch History

In 1992 a group of citizens concerned with the amount of excessive speeding within the District 69 area approached the RCMP to see what could be done. After several meetings and discussions the RCMP and ICBC teamed up to train and equip these citizens with speed monitoring equipment. Initially the group was small but over the years with the expansion and population growth of the area, volunteers now patrol a large area including the communities of Bowser to the north, Qualicum Beach, Coombs/Errington, Parksville and Nanoose Bay to the south.
