Speed Activated Signs (SAM2).

Woodton Parish Council now has access to two Speed Activated Signs, one is retained on a permanent basis and the other in partnership with Hempnall and Langley with Hardley Parish Councils.   The signs have software which records data of all vehicles and the results are very interesting- and horrifying!  Examples of data recorded are as follows;

  • Number of vehicles per week – up to 8,825 in one direction alone.
  • Highest speed – up to 70 mph in the 30 mph limit
  • Average speed increased to 40 mph between 5 and 6 am.
  • Peak volume in week one at 17.30 and in week 2 at 16.30.
