Speed Indicator Device (SID)

speed indicator device

Following a number of complaints from residents, the Parish Council decided to invest in a SID to monitor the number and speed of cars using roads at agreed locations around the Parish.

The data we have collected so far has already highlighted issues in some areas. Data measuring the speed of cars using Tithe Barn Lane around school run times was passed to Kent County Council to support a request for traffic calming measures. This has resulted in a puffin crossing being installed at the crossing between the Singleton Barn and Homestead in 2019.

Further down this page you can see the approved locations that are used for SID, and if you click on the heading link you will be able to access the detailed data that is generated.

The Parish Council has data going back to November 2018, covering various different measurements. If you are interested in accessing the more detailed statistics please feel free to contact the Clerk on TheClerk@greatchartsingleton-pc.gov.uk.
