Speed Indicator Device
The Speed Indicator Device, owned by the Parish Council and purchased after securing funding from the Police Commissioners Office, is moved around the Parish at 7 locations every 2-3 weeks.
When a vehicle approaches the SID, and is exceeding the speed limit, the sign will be lit with a sign confirming the 30MPH limit.
We expect this reminder will help drivers be aware of their speed and be more considerate when passing through our villages.
More importantly, the SID records the number of vehicles which break the speed limit over a period. This data is used to assist in creating future traffic management policies.
