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 08.30 – 09.30 on Wednesday 9th January 2019, five volunteers performed a Community SpeedWatch (CSW) on Alfreton Road, B6179 near the junction with Morley Lane. Of 602 vehicles passing the location during the watch period, 9% were speeding with 18 vehicles travelling over 35mph.

One driver was seen on a mobile phone, One vehicle was recorded twice during the hour of the CSW and several rear number plates were completely obscured.

Of most concern was a narrow miss when a speeding vehicle had to swerve into the oncoming lane to avoid another vehicle turning out of Morley Lane onto the B6179. If it had been travelling at 30mph the road would have been clear OR it would have been able to slow down or stop if necessary.

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.

Weather and volunteer numbers permitting, the next CSW is arranged for 9th January 2019 between 08.30 – 09.30 at the junction of Morley Lane with Alfreton Road (B6179)

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
