The LE Speedwatch group conducted a session on Tues 7th June at 3pm for an hour. This took place on Alfreton Road, adjacent to #192. More »
This site is really effective as both North & South bound traffic can be monitored and at this time (3-4pm) it was very busy.
474 vehicles passed through the site, only 26 were monitored at above 30mph and only one above 36mph.
We know the norm for speeding is above these levels (see attached Travel Survey from March 2020).
This proves how effective these sessions are in making people aware of their speed through the village and makes it known that we as a village are taking steps to protect residents by running sessions frequently.
Huge thank you to the commitment of our volunteers who have really stepped up to deliver multiple sessions every month.
