A local parish council in Tetbury reported a 24% drop in the highest speed on their targeted road within just one month of installation.The 40mph road had motorists speeding at a dangerous 61.5mph, but with an eye-catching Vehicle Activated Speed sign, this top speed reduced down to 45.7mph after 25 days of being in use.
Although the results collected from the signs cannot be used to prosecute speeding motorists, the reports and data are often used by councils and Local Highways Authorities to help set-up speeding enforcement procedures.

“The unit is proving very successful in calming traffic through the village. The flashing signal clearly and effectively reminds drivers of the prevailing speed limit, and the data gathering function is useful in determining which sites within the village benefit most from its deployment. The unit is sufficiently portable to enable it to be rotated between separate locations on a regular basis. We are also planning to liaise with the local constabulary over the summer months, and provide data from the unit in order to help them target the most effective periods to deploy mobile enforcement cameras.”– Kevin Beck, Parish Council in Tetbury
