Speed Indicator Device Scheme

15 August 2023

Derbyshire Police and Crime Commissioner confirms £150k fund to deliver on promise to improve road safety.

Speed Indicator Devices (SIDs) are a type of electronic vehicle activated sign used on the public highway.

Speeding is a nationwide issue that causes increased accidents, noise pollution, and air pollution. Speed Indicator Devices (SIDs) offer traffic management solutions in reducing vehicle speeds to create safer and cleaner roads. They are electric signs which display a message or speed when triggered by vehicles travelling at excessive speeds. They are intended to supplement rather than replace the traditional signs and lines and are aimed at addressing specific road safety problems.

Commissioner Angelique Foster has promised to deliver stronger and more effective policing to tackle the priorities local people have identified. Road safety is among a series of key priorities featured in the Commissioner’s Police and Crime Plan after being frequently raised by the public as an issue of concern.

Applications to this scheme can only be made for local Authority areas which fall within the County Council area NOT the City.

Local parish, town, or district councils can apply to purchase signs in line with the specification for use on the public highway.
