Community Speedwatch

Community Speedwatch

Did you know at impact speeds of up to 15mph, pedestrians are more likely to sustain minor injuries than no injuries, at impact speeds above 20 mph, pedestrians are more likely to suffer more serious injury than minor injuries and at impact speeds of less than 30 mph, the majority of pedestrians survive.

Significantly, at impact speeds above 35 mph, most pedestrians suffer fatal injuries.

Between 17.00 – 18.00 on 16th July 2018 five volunteers performed a Community SpeedWatch (CSW) at the junction of Morley Lane with the B6179, Alfreton Road

Of 902 vehicles passing the location during the watch period 11% were speeding with 16 vehicles travelling between 35 mph – 41mph. This number is lower than previously recorded at this location and may be due to a problem on the A38 resulting in a much larger volume of traffic slowing the overall speed

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. In response to some comments received during this watch period be assured we all have very busy lives but are committed to trying to make the village a safer place for everyone living here and passing through. Apart from it being an offence, the speed limit is 30mph for a reason!

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 via the Parish Council Clerk – clerk@littleeatonparishcouncil.org,.uk . 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.

The next CSW is arranged 08.00 – 09.00 on 8th August. Although the locations may be changed, the CSW dates for 2018-19 posted on the PC Web Page will be carried out weather and volunteer number permitting.
