Vehicle speed in Broad Hinton
The Parish Council requested that Wiltshire Council investigate the speed of traffic going through Broad Hinton. The study was run on the High Street in September and the following speed data was captured.
Average speed over 7 days was 27.3 mph
85th percentile speed was 31.9 mph
26.4% of vehicles were travelling over 30 mph
4.6% of vehicles were travelling over 35 mph
0.1% of vehicles were travelling over 45 mph
The detailed results are in the attached PDF.
For action to be taken the following thresholds must be met.
Community Speed Watch - 85th percentile speed of between 35.1 and 41.9 mph
Police Enforcement - 85th percentile speed of over 42 mph
This means that no further action will be taken.
The Parish Council is continuing to look at ways that we can improve road safety in the parishes.
