New Courtesy Speed Monitor Throughout Moree Plains

Moree Plains Shire Council has taken possession of a new courtesy speed monitor to address speeding concerns and promote safer driving.

Courtesy Speed MonitorThe courtesy speed monitor, which has been retro-fitted to a trailer, has an electronic display board connected to a radar unit that shows the speed of the approaching vehicle.

Council’s Road Safety Officer Renee McMillian explained the speed monitor assists drivers to become more aware of their speed by checking their speedometers regularly so to avoid going too fast.

‚ÄúSpeeding is a growing concern in many communities and the courtesy speed monitor gives motorists individual feedback about their speed and creates a heightened sense of awareness about driving practices.‚ÄĚ

It has been proven that the use of courtesy speed monitors can effectively reduce speed on average, up to 10% over fixed periods of time.

The new speed monitor has inbuilt data recording and Bluetooth connectivity allowing Council to wirelessly evaluate the effectiveness of speed reduction campaigns.

It also has a time scheduling functionality so is capable of displaying different messages at various times of day for driver and pedestrian alerts such as school zone times.

Keep an eye out for the new courtesy speed monitor set up in the streets in your town throughout Moree Plains.

Remember that speeding can result in loss of licence, serious injury or can have fatal consequences. Fines for exceeding the speed limit range from $112 and one demerit points through to $2,306 and six demerit points.
