Traffic Speeding In Crowfield

In June this year the Suffolk Highways Authority measured the speed of traffic at three points in the village. The data collected shows that there is a significant and dangerous speeding issue. The evidence for this is:

Each day the village averaged 644 instances of speeds in excess of 40mph, an average 60 instances of speeds in excess of 50mph, with less than 30% of vehicles complying with the legal speed limit of 30mph.

The police will be taking action to enforce the 30mph speed limit. In addition the village could acquire a flashing 30mph sign. This could be located for a time at each of the three main entry points into the village; trials elsewhere have shown that more effective control of speeding is achieved if the signs are not located in a permanent location. Volunteers are needed to move the sign between the various positions. We will receive guidance from the Highways Authority and the Police. If we do not have volunteers we will be unable to acquire the sign. If you are concerned about road safety in the village and are willing to help or you would like more information please contact Lynne Rowe the Clerk to the Parish Council:
