Did you knowin the 20 – 30mph range, a reduction of 6mph is reported to result in a 40% reduction in road noise.
On 11.1.18, three volunteers performed a Community SpeedWatch (CSW) between Bottle Brook and Westley Crescent
Of 150 vehicles passing the location during the watch period 43% were speeding with 15 vehicles travelling between 35 mph – 41mph.
The Community Speed Watch Programme is performed by volunteers who live in the village and who try to regularly monitor the speed of vehicles travelling through. If you are able to help by volunteering or if you want to set up a Community Speedwatch around where you live please get in touch. It is easy to do and involves committing as little as an hour of your time when convenient to you.
The CSW is performed with delegated responsibility from Derbyshire Police, which provide the equipment and full training.
Although the locations may be changed, the CSW dates for 2017-18 posted on the PC Web Page will be carried out weather and volunteer number permitting.
