SID is our new ‘Speed Indicator Device’ currently based on Northampton Road which will accurately measure oncoming vehicle speed and displays this value to the driver. The speed will only be indicated if it is less than 40 mph. Any one exceeding this receives a ‘slow down’ message only.
SID is mobile and will be used in a variety of locations throughout Brixworth. It records data which can then be used to determine the need for introducing other methods of enforcement such as the Speed Camera Van.
From studies elsewhere in the country there is concrete evidence that Speed Indication Devices reduce speed and reduces the chance of a collision.
SID has been installed as a result of feedback from the Brixworth residents and was financed from the Brixworth Parish Council 2017/18 precept at a cost of £3,600.
Please drive safely and slowly.
