20 mph Speed Data

We have been monitoring the speed in the 20 mph section of Comberton Road and New Road over the last few months. The average speeds have come down by roughly 3 mph compared to data recorded when it was 30 mph. Motorists seem to take notice of the active sign and do seem to slow down. However, v85 speeds are high at 31 to 32 mph and more than 50% of drivers are travelling faster than “speed ticket” threshold of 24 mph. There are some alarming top speeds recorded at over 70 mph.
