Brilliant idea. Have seen them work in villages in Italy. I wish that we could have a set in our village.

It is vital to have warning signs ahead of the lights and effective APNR to pursue motorists that ignore the red light.

This idea was trialed in Croydon and works really well.
After making the connection with the lights changing to my speed I always kept below the limit so I didn't need to stop. Although there were no signs it became quite obvious my speed was making them change.

Following the success of the scheme on the A78 in Fairlie, we are continuing to monitor a pilot study on the use of similar technology at two sites on the A75 in the village of Springholm. Monitoring of traffic speeds through the village are showing positive results in relation to speed reduction.
