Following on from the original set of data from our local speed sign, we thought it would be interesting to take a sample week in order to share some more insights. Specifically for the 7 days starting Monday 16th October, the following charts show:
- Volume of vehicles passing the sign per day.
- Average volume of vehicles passing the sign per hour of the day.
- The range of speeds vehicles are passing the sign per hour of the day.
Please note, the sign records vehicles one direction only, so the true number of vehicles passing the sign is doubled if you assume the same number of vehicles traveling in the opposite direction. Clicking on any of the charts makes them bigger and easier to read.
On a week day, approx. 1,700 pass the sign. If you double that to take into account vehicles traveling in the opposite direction, that is 3,400 vehicles – a surprisingly busy stretch of road.
The above chart shows the high volumes of vehicles per hour during the morning and early evening periods.
This is a complex chart, it does show that on average vehicles are traveling below 30 miles per hour. However, during peak times each day we have a considerable number of vehicles traveling at 35, 40, 45 and even 50 miles per hour down this stretch of road. Let’s all play our part in keeping this busy road safe for all residents of our estate.
