Observations on a wet Friday afternoon suggest that a large proportion of drivers using Wetherby Road are triggering the Vehicle Activated Speed signs.
42% of drivers exiting the City triggered the 30 mph warning signs.
Few drivers seemed – in less than ideal conditions – to be speeding excessively. Many did bake after the warning sign illuminated – suggesting that the signs do affect the driving characteristics of many drivers.
Nevertheless the results may prompt the police to crack down on speeding on the road.
