Re: Holt Rd Safety

Posted in Parish Council Report

Hi Simon I was as surprised as you when I heard, as to what you say I suspect the answer is No - at 30 mph the speed detection equipment is fine and you will be done for it (if there is anyone around to take action) - logic says that the statement that the instrumentation is not accurate is probably wrong, my guess is that it is not tested and certified at that speed (20mph) whereas speeds above that are allowed for and have to be subjected to regular calibration in order to remain legally enforcible. If anyone knows what is the actual position we would love to hear it. With ref the comment about most people breaking it, all I can do is report what was said, perhaps someone who was at the WI meeting could confirm the actual wording and who said it.
