This report updates the Executive Member on the results of a SID (Speed Indicator Device) Trial which was approved in 2019. 

Additional documents:

Decision:

Resolved:

 

                      i.         Approved Option 2 in the report: to change the VAS Policy to include Speed Indicator Devices as an alternative sign, which provide feedback to drivers as follows:

·        A vehicle’s speed and thank you message for vehicles travelling at or below the posted speed limit.

·        The speed limit roundel and a slowdown message for vehicles exceeding the speed limit.

 

All VAS/SID sites must still meet the criteria established in the existing policy. The change to the policy would only be applied to new sites or existing

sites where replacement is required due to failure, unless external funding is available.

 

Reason:      To provide an alternative sign type at VAS sites as requested by many Ward and Parish Councillors.

Minutes:

Officers introduced the report and the Executive Member noted that he was happy to approve option 2.
