A new Speed Indicator Device (SID) has been installed on the approach into Hixon at New Road. The device displays the speed of vehicles as they enter the 30mph zone. Speeding drivers are advised to slow down from a distance of 100m. Drivers obeying the instruction are rewarded with a “Thank You.”
The SID will be moved around the village at monthly intervals to locations in Church Lane, Church Road and Lea Road. The SID, solar panels, support poles and installation were paid for by Hixon Parish Council for a total cost of £4,200.
