A Speedwatch survey held outside the Reading Room on 8th May 2017 found that 16 vehicles out of 120 (13%) were travelling at 35 mph or more in the 30 mph zone through the village. These drivers will be contacted by the police. It is estimated that about 50% of vehicles travelling past he Reading Rooms are exceeding the 30 mph limit.
It’s 30 for a reason
The difference of a few miles per hour can mean the difference between life and death. The faster someone is driving, the less time they have to stop if something unexpected happens.
If you kill someone while speeding, you will have to live with the long-term emotional consequences.
Speed limits are there for a reason.
