New signs of speed­ing in shared space

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Front Page -

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.
