Are you concerned about speeding in Horndean?
Can you help?
Some years ago, as a Parish Councillor, Guy Shepherd was instrumental in setting up a group of volunteers to operate two Speed Indication Devices (SID) in suitable roads in Horndean.
The volunteers worked very successfully on establishing appropriate sites, moving the units on a regular basis and collecting data which was passed to the police so that further action against speeding could be taken where a need was proven.
There is no doubt that a SID unit impacts speed. The figures prove it. After several years of excellent work the original volunteers decided that they had done their bit and wanted to retire from the scheme. So the units are not currently in use.
We still have problems of speeding, sometimes in quite unexpected roads. Not all roads are suitable for SID (mostly through safety considerations) but there are plenty of established sites and more could be considered.
Strategic placement of the SID units reduces the speed of vehicles. very useful tools especially coupled with Speed watch and the Police. Can you volunteer to help? A few hours a month?
All equipment provided and maintained by Horndean Parish Council. Also training and support provided. If you could join in this initiative please contact either myself: Lynn Evans, Chairman HPC on: firstname.lastname@example.org Or the Parish Office on: email@example.com
An initial meeting will be arranged once responses have been received.
