New speed indicator in bid to slow traffic down

Speed indicator devices have been installed on Pepper Mill outside of Lawley Primary School as part of a safety scheme to remind motorists to stick to the 20mph speed limit.

The devices have been installed in response to concerns raised by the school about motorists not sticking to the speed limit, and has been delivered using joint funding from Telford & Wrekin Council and Lawley Primary School.

Now motorists approaching the school from both directions of Pepper Mill will have their speed flashed at them as they approach and a smiley face will then flash up if they are travelling at the right speed or a sad face if they are not.

The devices also collect data so the Council can monitor the overall traffic speeds in the area which will help inform if any further measures are needed to improve safety.

    I personally believe these devices do a huge amount of good work, almost on a par with ‘fine’ cameras.
