Find out what we are doing to reduce speeding in South Gloucestershire.
We have a responsibility to set speed limits on our roads.
To set safe speed limits we assess the local environment and consider road use and crash history.
What we do to help reduce speeding
To help reduce speeding we do the following:
- use vehicle activated speed signs to remind drivers of their speed
- run education campaigns to raise awareness of dangerous driving
They can also request for us to deploy a vehicle activated speed sign on a road by sending an email to StrategicRoadSafety@Southglos.gov.uk.
You should also read our policy and guidance for vehicle activated speed signs applications.
Traffic calming measures can help to keep safe speeds. They also protect our most vulnerable road users.
Avon and Somerset Police are responsible for enforcing speed limits on the roads.
They also support local communities to monitor speeding drivers through community speed watch programmes.
If you are worried about speeding in your area report it to Avon and Somerset Police.
