Since December 2020, Stonesfield has had two Speed Indicator Devices (SID) in operation at various places in the village. The second SID was on loan from the manufacturer, Morelock.
In August 2021 Morelock asked for the unit to be returned but also offered the opportunity to purchase it at a very favourable price. Realising that this was an opportunity not to be missed, a group of Stonesfield residents raised the £1,200 required to purchase the second SID. This included donations from David Miller of Stonesfield Garage and Cllr Andy Graham. This enabled the Parish Council to make the purchase of the SID without impact on other funding requirements..
SAFER regularly relocate both SID units, replenishing batteries and downloading speed data. This data forms part of a monthly report to the Parish Council. Securing the second SID unit enables SAFER to continue providing feedback to drivers on their speed through the village and collect data on traffic volumes / speeds.
Stonesfield Parish Council and SAFER thank residents for their generosity and support, enabling the continuity of operating two SIDs. This is helping SAFER to work towards reduce excessive speeding in the village.
