While driving through Horndean you will have seen the Parish Council SID unit – hopefully smiling at you as you pass by within the speed limit. This is deployed and maintained by a group of volunteers who position it around the 22 sites in the villages that are approved by Hampshire County Council to monitor road speeds.
The data gathered shows the date, time and speed of every vehicle passing (but not the number plate).
This data is then used to support enforcement by The Police who target the worst offending times (recently the SID unit recorded a speed of 106MPH in a 40 zone) and also to support cases for road safety improvements.
The SID team are looking for a few volunteers to join their team to help out maybe one hour every month or two to move the unit. This is a very simple task, but requires a few people to do it safely. All training will be provided by the SID team.
