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. More »

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

Between 17.00 – 18.00 on Tuesday 6th August, five volunteers performed a Community SpeedWatch (CSW) near the junction of New Inn Lane with Alfreton Road, the B6179.

Of 560 vehicles passing the location during the watch period, 12% were speeding with 21 vehicles travelling over 35mph, car speeds ranging between 35 – 43mph.

Perhaps due to school holidays the total number of vehicles was less than is usually seen at this location, however, a significant number of cars were recorded travelling in excess of the 30mph speed limit.

Between 08.00 – 09.00 on Tuesday 23rd July, five volunteers performed a Community SpeedWatch (CSW) near the junction of Morley Lane with Alfreton Road, the B6179. Of 513 vehicles passing the location during the watch period, 16% were speeding with 20 vehicles travelling over 35mph, car speeds ranging between 35 – 44mph.

Perhaps due to school holidays the total number of vehicles was less than is usually seen at this location, however, transit vans and articulated lorries made up a significant number of vehicles. One van was recorded speeding twice during the one hour watch period and a motorbike recorded at 50mph!

Did you know that under the Crime & Disorder Act 1998 drivers making rude hand gestures could be prosecuted for Disorderly Conduct and 'not being fully in control of a vehicle'? The registration of a vehicle was passed on after the driver was observed to make such a rude gesture by flipping his middle finger.

Between 08.30 – 09.30, on Monday 24th June, six volunteers performed a Community SpeedWatch (CSW) on Morley Lane. Of 251 vehicles passing the location during the watch period, 26% were speeding with 11 vehicles travelling over 35mph.

The total number of vehicles was less than is usually seen at this location, however, the number travelling over the speed limit was double that seen at the New Inn Lane location.

Between 08.30 – 09.30, on Wednesday 15th of May, six volunteers performed a Community SpeedWatch (CSW) at the junction of New Inn Lane with Alfreton Road (B6179). Of 534 vehicles passing the location during the watch period, 18% were speeding with 18 vehicles travelling over 35mph.

Between 17.00 – 18.00 on Tuesday 9th April, six volunteers performed a Community SpeedWatch (CSW) at the junction of Morley Lane with Alfreton Road (B6179). Of 865 vehicles passing the location during the watch period, 11% were speeding with 18 vehicles travelling over 35mph.

One driver was seen using a mobile phone. Not only is this an offence, drivers are 4 times more likely to have an accident while using a mobile phone while driving.

This is the first CSW at this location since the installation of the Vehicle Activated Sign (VAS) near Jack O'Darley Bridge. Sadly there doesn't appear to be any impact which is really disappointing.

The CSW is performed with delegated responsibility from Derbyshire Police, which provide the equipment and full training.

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 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 dates until April 2019 are posted on the PC Web Page and will be carried out weather and volunteer numbers permitting. The next CSW is arranged for 13th March 2019 between 08.00 – 09.00 on the Old Alfreton Road

Although the locations may be changed, the CSW dates for 2018-19 will be carried out weather and volunteer number permitting. For dates please click here » Less
