Speed Control


Belstone class joined Chudleigh Knighton Road Traffic Team to investigate the speed at which motorists pass through the village. The children also used frequency charts to record how many vehicles used the B… road. This information was then passed onto the Parish Council. 

PC Easton and PC Rachel instructed the children how to use a ‘Speed Gun’ which calculated the speed which motorists were passing by. The children had opportunities to interview motorists to ask questions concerning road traffic safety.


Here are a few comments made by the children:


'It was amazing to use the speed gun and record the speed cars were travelling in actual mph'


'We were able t explore the inside of a police riot van. I actually sae a cage inside!'


'A note to all drivers, watch your speed, as the Chudleigh Knighton Speed Team just might be watching!'
