The Parish Council has received the results of the speed survey it recently commissioned on the High Street outside The Plough Inn – see below.
The survey ran from Thursday 9th to Friday 17th November and data was collected on vehicles travelling in both directions outside the pub. The “85%ile Speed” refers to the speed at or below which 85% of vehicles were travelling.
The 85%ile combined with the mean speeds are used by Police and Road Safety experts as the critical speed for further action. In a 20mph zone like the High Street, action would only be warranted if the mean and the 85%ile significantly exceed 25mph. Above this figure the Police would consider further enforcement and OCC may just consider additional traffic calming measures.
The results of the survey do not indicate further action, however our Community Speedwatch team will continue to monitor this road and report any vehicles measured with excessive speeds.
