Speed Sensor Data


SPEED INDICATOR DEVICES (SID)

01 February 2020

In an effort to reduce the speed of vehicles in and around the Town, Blyth Town Council have purchased a number of Speed Indicator Devices. These devices, or sensors as more commonly known, are temporary vehicle activated signs which detect and display real time vehicle speeds. The device will also record data that enables us to analyse various statistics about vehicle numbers, speed values and violations. From the data recorded we can produce detailed reports which can be shared with Northumbria Police and other relevant organisations.

The visual speed indication and thereby the attempt to influence the driver`s speed is quite a new field in the common road and traffic technology. Nowadays public authorities start to install luminary speed indication signs for the same purpose and additionally to manage the traffic flow. Besides avoiding traffic congestion, these systems also shall decrease the drivers speed in order to reduce the rate of accidents and the heaviness of their consequences.

Our system of a mobile, autonomous and numerical speed indication display fulfils this aim especially in communal and urban areas, speed limit zones, living areas and in front of schools.

The Speed Indicator Devices are regularly moved to different locations across Blyth. A monthly summary and Speed data table will be available to view on this page from each Speed Indicator Device from each location.

Drivers caught speeding can also suffer in many ways e.g. shame and embarrassment, points on a driving licence, fines, additional insurance premiums or disqualification

       

Listed below are the abbreviations for the monthly speed data table:

Speed Violations Percentage of vehicles exceeding the speed limit

Vehicles Number of vehicles recorded during evaluation time

Vd (mph) Average speed of vehicles during evaluation time

Vmax (mph) Maximum speed recorded by sensor during evaluation time
