Speeding in our Village

 

        car image 4SID image

The Parish Council recognises that there is an issue with speeding through our village, and as a result we have purchased 2 Speed Indicator Divices.

These 2 devices can be deployed across 4 locations at present.

The Green

Mildenhall Road

Hurdle Drove

Chapel Road

 

Suffolk County Council refused us permission ( due to various highway rules and regulations ) to locate one on Pott Hall Road.

We are still working hard to change their mind and allow us to install another post on Pott Hall Road.

 

The devices we have purchased, record vehicle movements and speeds in both directions, but only display speed and messages to incoming vehicles.

 

Typical results from each location.
