SAM2 Speed Awareness Camera – Data

how it works…

We have five sites around the parish that we have agreed with the Highways Department but there are guidelines that we are asked to abide by;

  • we have to re-site it every four weeks
  • we cannot return to the same site within four weeks

Turning it round 180º constitutes a site change because we are monitoring a different flow of traffic

we securely site the camera

it counts and records the speed of every vehicle that goes past it
> > > 1 > > >

every four weeks, we move it

three councillors move the camera to a different site
> > > 2 > > >

and we download the data

the data is downloaded on site and securely stored

which we forward to the Police

we securely transfer it to our Beat Manager

who analyse it carefully

to work out when and where the issues are

and come up with a cunning plan

to catch the pesky speeders in the act

and it paints a picture…

64,086 vehicles were recorded in 167 days  ::  that’s 384 vehicles a day passing through our village

The good news is… 47,612 of them (74.29%) were within the speed limit

That’s great right?   Because it means that 3 in every 4 drivers respected our right to be safe on our roads…

That’s true… but it also means that one in every four didn’t!!!

16,474 vehicles broke the speed limit on our roads in a little under 6 months

almost one hundred drivers broke the law in our village every single day
