New sign will help to tackle speeding in Wymondham
- Credit: Submitted
A town council has bought a new speed sign as part of an initiative to encourage motorists to drive at or below the speed limit.
Wymondham Town Council has purchased a SAM2 speed monitor, which will give a visual alert to drivers showing the speed they are travelling.
Where appropriate, it will ask them to slow down on certain roads in Wymondham.
The equipment has been bought with funding help from Norfolk County Council under its parish parnership scheme.
The SAM2 unit can be moved to a range of fixed locations where brackets will be installed, enabling the flashing sign to spend a week or two in different places where excess speed is known to be a problem.

The town's mayor Colin Foulger said: 'This sign will be used to educate motorists and to encourage them to drive at or below the speed limit.
