The Bettisfield Flasher has been in us for more than 18 months but it is still recording vehicles doing over 70mph as they approach and leave the village. The chart below shows those vehicles dong over 70mph during the period 9th August to 6th September 2017.
The data shows that most drivers approaching the village slow down as soon as they see the sign, perhaps not realising how fast they are travelling. However, some drivers actually speed up when the see the sign which really beggars belief. The fasted speed recorded was on 27th August at 17.36 at 89 mph!
We have been told by WCBC Highways Department that ‘speed limits in Bettisfield are being reviewed’, so lets hope they come down of an enforceable 30mph limit before someone is killed.
