Surrey Council provides funding for safety signs

Surrey Council has now set aside additional funding to ensure that vehicle-activated safety signs can be used across the county.

These signs are placed at the side of roads and flash to notify motorists of information such as the speed limit and any nearby hazards if they are driving at an excessive speed. The £30,000 used to fund the signs was generated through the council and Surrey Police's Drive SMART campaign.

Assessments have discovered a 30 per cent reduction in accidents in the areas where the signs have been installed.

Kay Hammond, Surrey County Council's cabinet member for community safety, said: "These signs are an important part of our road safety work which is why we need them to be in good working order. This money will be used to fix or replace any that have broken."

This news comes after the BBC reported that a new stand at Sussex County Cricket Club will open when new safety signs have been installed. ADNFCR-2754-ID-800520145-ADNFCR
