The most recent information from the Community Speed Watch Team is –
From our many speed checks in Picktree Village we have recorded some speeding. Due to this Durham County Council has carried out a 7 day 24 hour survey at the request of the police to get up to date data. Here is this data.
From 4/12/2020 to 11/12/2020, 4012 vehicles passed…. up to 30 mph was 59%…31 to 35 mph was 29%…36 to 40 mph was 9%… 41 to 45 mph was 2%…46 to 50 mph was 1% .
The mean speed was 29 mph and as this level of vehicle speed does not meet the police escalation levels for a dedicated speed enforcement presence we will keep doing our checks.
The threshold for enforcement is 35 to 50 mph.
The Parish Council encourages everyone to follow Government guidelines during this difficult time.
Please refer to the official Government website (www.gov.uk) to read more.
