The new Moveable Vehicle Activated Sign (MVAS) in North Street shows alarming results.
Over 3 weeks it recorded the speeds of more than 80,000 vehicles travelling into and out of the
village.  15% of vehicles broke the speed limit travelling south into the village and 38% travelling
Of these nearly 350 vehicles exceeded 50mph, and more than 80 exceeded 60mph! One
vehicle sped towards the village centre at 93mph and another (perhaps the same one?) half an
hour later headed north at 82mph!
This is clearly unacceptable.  Members of the Parish Council have discussed the matter with our District and County Councillors and it will be raised at the next Parish Council meeting.
More information is being published in SCAN and further data will be added to the Parish Council website.
