The latest data from the village speed sign on Tattershall Road (40mph section) has been analysed and the following results obtained. The 85th percentile speed (used as an accurate measure of longer term trends) has dropped slightly from prior periods to 43.3mph. Also, the percentage of drivers speeding is around 27%, again a slight drop on prior periods. Hopefully this represents an improving long term picture.
Despite these improvements, we continue to see alarming speeds being recorded with instances of 85mph being recorded on more than one occasion, and one vehicle clocked at 95mph. We have also noted cars travelling in excess of 75mph during the school drop off and collection times when children are walking around the village. Continue reading →

From Ian Swallow, Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership (email received by the Parish Council):
You may have heard on the news that Lincolnshire Police are launching a program for members of the public to use hand held radars in their parishes.
I should first mention that a date has not been confirmed for its roll out but it is expected to be February/ March next year. This will allow time for staff to be recruited to deliver the program. In brief though, LRSP is adding another layer to our Community Speed watch initiative. Inspector Phil Baker and myself presented this at a Road safety summit in Grantham on the 3rd November. CSW has been in existence in its present form since 2014.
As you know it gives parishes the ability to display 30 mph or 40 mph passive notices and, also, to purchase a vehicle activated sign. Parishes may also purchase wheelie bin stickers to remind drivers of the speed limit. Most of you will be aware that other police force parishes make use of a reactive sign on a tripod or hand held radar to detect drivers exceeding the speed limit. Lincolnshire will be doing the same.
