School SID Programme
Flashing speed signs which warn motorists to slow down near schools have been installed at 16 locations across Staffordshire. The electronic speed indication devices (SIDs) are part of a high profile campaign which aims to encourage drivers to reduce their speed to 20mph on the approach to schools.
A SID is a luminous sign which displays and records the speed, date and time for each vehicle that passes. This information can be summarised and the results will be reported back to the school. The information may also be used to identify speeding issues that require further action.
Schools are nominated by County Councillors who believe that the schools chosen will benefit from the traffic calming equipment.
