New signs of speeding in shared space
THIS electronic sign is a graphic illustration of just how many motorists are speeding through Ashford’s controversial new shared space area.
A flashing sign has been installed which tells drivers how fast they are travelling through shared space in the hope that they will react and slow down to the 20mph speed limit.
But a survey we carried out yesterday (Wednesday) on speeds being displayed on the new solar-powered sign shows that most passing cars were over the speed limit, with one motorist registering 31mph – 11mph above the speed limit.
