20mph signage in Ewelme

The larger 20 sign to say it is a change in speed limit is not very visible from the direction of Benson and Raf Benson. The sign pretty much faces the bushes. The angle of my picture is from the off road parking near the bridge and so gets a better angle than you do from the road. The next sign after this is a reminder sign, very small and within some bushes. Residents have taken to putting their own reminder signs up in their front gardens as it is clear the new limit is not being recognised or maybe just ignored! My car has a recognition of speed limit signs, and the positioning of the sign in question is missed completely by my cars recognition and it doesn’t acknowledge the change until the reminder sign- providing the reminder sign isn’t blocked by another car or the bush! I think the new speed limit is great for the village as the road is essentially a path for walkers and makes it much safer all round.

Thank you for your report. We have inspected the larger 30mph speed limit 'terminal' signs and they are both currently suitably aligned as it must be remembered that they do need to cover vehicles approaching from both Green and Eyre's Lane. For the driver, indication that you are entering a 20mph speed limit is within the drivers eye and is supplemented by the speed limit roundel. We are pleased to hear that the new 20mph speed limit has been well received.
