Balcombe Parish Council By Balcombe Parish Council

We would like to raise funds to purchase our own Speed Indication Device (SID) so that we can reduce the speed of cars travelling through our village.

The village is plagued by speeding traffic and the Parish Council has in the past borrowed a SID machine which has been effective in flashing up the speed of cars and has thereby been effective in slowing cars down. We see that the purchase of our own machine that we can move around the village to different roads will be an effective means of slowing traffic. We have several "black spots" where the device had been proven to work and by rotating the machine to different sites we believe that drivers will not become complacent and will continue to be influenced to slow down. We have particular concerns on the roads that see parents and children walking to school on pavements that are only centimetres from potentially speeding vehicles of all sizes.

What we'll deliver:

  • Make our roads safer for villagers

Why it's a great idea:

The Speed Indicator Devices are an effective tool to remind motorists to stick to a speed limit and are proven to slow traffic down on the roads where they operate.

Steps to get it done:

Location Balcombe
