SAM2 Speed Awareness Camera – Data

here’s 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…


this is the percentage of vehicles that were recorded driving within the speed limit

To all those who drove safely through our village within the speed limit :: we thank you

To all those who disrespectfully choose to ignore the speed limit :: shame on you

384,352 vehicles were recorded in 495 days, that’s 776 vehicles a day passing through our village in one direction

The good news is… 331,046 of them (86%) were within the speed limit
That’s great right?   Because it means that almost 9 in every 10 drivers respected our right to be safe on our roads

Well, yes it is… but it also means that more than one in every ten didn’t!!!

53,406 vehicles broke the speed limit on our roads, in our village, in just under 16 months

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

…that’s one every 6 minutes…

And remember… we can only measure the speed of traffic travelling in one direction!
