Speeding through the village of Stanford Rivers is a huge problem and the a113SpeederBot was born to highlight that and campaign for change. We have numbers proving that there’s a problem, and this is the place where we’ll publish them for you with detailed insights and pretty graphics..
Be aware that sometimes this page might be a little behind, especially around September time, when it needs completely rewriting for the year. I’ve only got one pair of hands, okay? 😉
The bot started logging in August 2021, so all our annual data results run from August to August.
Let’s start with the partial stats for the year so far. That’ll be the period August 23rd 2022 to August 22nd 2023
Our highest logged speed so far this year is 71.88 mph, logged on 09/11/2022 at 0559 hrs. That’s 240% of the 30 mph speed limit. We log daily highest speeds since August 2021, so please take a look if you’re interested in those numbers.
We first revved up the bot up on 23rd of August 2021, so up until 22nd August 2022 the bot had logged over 9,000 entries. Yup, the bot has been busy.
The highest speed logged in our first year was 76.92 mph, logged on 29/12/2021 at 0559 hrs. That’s an eye-watering 256% of the 30 mph speed limit.
So, averaging the top three highest speeds recorded above give us a speed of seventy four miles per hour and that’s 248% of the 30 mph limit in the village. You wouldn’t want one of your kids straying into the road, would you?
The average speed equal to or above forty five mph that was logged during 2021/22, using the same sample set, was forty eight mph, which is 161% of the 30mph speed limit.
We’ve also taken the average and maximum logged speeds for each month of the first year the bot was active, that’s August 2021 to August 2022.
In that period, we’ve recorded a very slight decline in the trendline for average monthly speeds above the trigger point of 45 mph, this is illustrated below.
Sadly, this teeny decline in average monthly speeds is not good enough; especially when you see that the trendline for the average maximum monthly speed (below) is more or less constant, with no improvement at all.
So, its pretty indisputable that there’s a problem here, and it’s pretty clear that something needs to be done about it. Why are these people in so much of a hurry?
