Speed Indicator Device Deployed In Nettleham

A Speed Indicator Device (SID), partly paid for by Nettleham Parish Council, was deployed for the first time in the village on Monday, 20th September 2010 on Deepdale Lane.

The devices have been shown to have a significant effect on reducing traffic speeds. In a year-long study of the speed of more than 325,000 vehicles showed that road safety signs that flash up drivers' speeds do work.

Dorset County Council, who compared the average speeds recorded at thirty-five sites to speeds before the SIDs were deployed, demonstrated that drivers' speeds were five miles per hour lower near the speed indicator devices.
