Traffic Issues

  ​

Speeding traffic continues to be a concern in the village, so the Parish Council has purchased a number of Speed Awareness Monitor (SAM2) devices, in order to assist the 'Speed Watch' team with gathering data. 

Updates

LOWER STOKE

 

Traffic travelling South through the village on Norwich Road between 20th December 2022 and 24th January2023 amounted to a total of just over 44,000 vehicles.  The bulk of those were travelling at an average speed of 30mph with some 15% exceeding the 30 limit by about 3mph.  The maximum isolated driver was recorded doing 55mph at 10.30pm on 28th December.  This picture shows an improvement on previous figures and considering the absence by and large of Community Speedwatch over that period, is encouraging.   Let’s hope this trend continues……..

 

UPPER STOKE

 

Traffic travelling West along Poringland Road, towards Lower Stoke, between the same period as above amounted to a total of just over 40,000 vehicles.   The bulk of those (85%)were travelling at or less than 33mph, but 28% of the total were exceeding the speed limit.  The average overall speed was 28mph due to the fact that a lot of vehicles passing the machine were probably just leaving their driveways and starting their journey, thereby going slowly.  One stupid individual was recorded as driving at 70mph at 2.35pm on 15th January, a time when many drivers would have been travelling to pick their children up from school.  This general picture is not good and it is to be hoped that with a renewed Community Speedwatch presence and some help from the local Police (to be arranged) we can improve things in the near future………
