Speeding in Scarisbrick

by .




The Parish Council receives many complaints from residents about speeding vehicles on our rural roads and the dangers that this causes.

We have been working hard to address this and are now ready to commence with Phase One of the campaign. This will include:

  • The purchase of 2 Speed Indicator Devices (SPIDs), which will be deployed around Scarisbrick, has been agreed. These will alert motorists to their speed and will also collect data that can be used to provide evidence for passing to partner agencies (such as Police and Lancashire County Council) for further preventative measures to be investigated. The data can also be published on the Scarisbrick Today website and speeding hotspots will be identified.
  • Providing households in Scarisbrick with speed sign wheelie bin stickers. This method has been introduced in neighbouring parishes where is has worked well at alerting motorists to the speeding issue. The stickers are currently on order and to make this initiative a success we are looking for volunteers who would be willing to deliver these around Scarisbrick. If you would like to get involved please email the Scarisbrick Parish Clerk at scarisbrickpc@outlook.com

Phase Two of the campaign will be the purchase of more SPIDs so that more local roads can be covered. If you have any suggestions for other actions against speeding please get in touch at scarisbrickpc@outlook.com or come along to our Scarisbrick Parish Council meetings (please see Scarisbrick Today website for details).
