Speed Indicator Device
Traffic calming measures in Bentley took another step forward at the beginning of July when our new Speed Indicator Device (SID) was purchased and installed by the Parish Council. This was the culmination of two years of hard work by the Parish Council but will be well worth the effort. There are four sites, including two at either end of the village, that the SID will rotate around. The SID will warn speeding drivers and allow us to analyse traffic in both directions across a range of parameters from average and peak speed to traffic volumes. This will enable and support any further initiatives to protect road users in our cherished village. The PC has a dedicated group of councillors who will be changing the batteries and SID location periodically and will be working with our Community Speed Watch team to look at the impact on driver behaviour.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact the PC.
