WCC: Road Safety Initiatives for your Community
You may already be aware of a number of community based speeding initiatives run by WCC’s Road Safety team to help the community deal with the issue of speeding. A few of these initiatives have been revised/improved to help address community concerns about speeding. Below is a brief summary of some of the initiatives that are run;
A two week campaign which utilises trained SpeedAware Officers who will deploy mobile flashing signs, a fixed sign (where applicable), undertake covert and overt speed surveys, undertake a full speed survey (where applicable), install anti speeding posters and deliver wheelie bin stickers door to door. At the end of the campaign a full report on all the activity will be provided. The cost of this campaign to Town/Parish Councils is £250
This is a free volunteer led scheme where volunteers are loaned the Smiley SID equipment for upto two weeks. Full training including use of Health and Safety equipment is provided.
Parish Hire Scheme – Vehicle Activated Signs
Fixed solar powered vehicle activated signs which display the speed limit can be installed on steel lamp columns for upto 6 months. The cost of installation and removal by our trained SpeedAware Officers is £200 per sign. Depending on demand, you maybe able to hire additional signs.
Please note, these schemes can only be operated in areas where the speed limit is 40mph or under.
If you would like further information on any of the above schemes, please do not hesitate to contact me. Further information about other schemes run by the Road Safety team can be found on our website: http://www.warwickshire.gov.uk/roadsafety
