C309 Debach Road
The Street Ufford Road
To address the issue of speeding traffic within Bredfield the Parish Council has invested in a number of Speed Indication Devices (SIDS) to encourage safe and careful driving when entering or passing through the village.
The newer of the signs provide visual feedback to the driver of their actual speed. This has been shown to promote safer driving behaviour and reduce speeding. In the case of excess speed the sign provides an enhanced reminder of the speed limit.
The mounting posts and their postion is determined by Highways England who also cover the cost installation.
Two speed signs incorporate a data collector that records information on traffic flows over a 24 hour period in 5 minute intervals. The key data items are the speed and the time of vehicles passing. In particular those that exceed the speed limit that is set within the device. The equipment does not take photographs or record vehicle registrations.
The data will be used to support traffic calming measures where there are known to be issues.
The alternative locations of the equipement are shown in the table below.
