18 -22 November 2013
Again Broadclyst is supporting Brake Charity’s Road Safety Week (18 to 22 November). Visible signs around the main roads crossing the Parish will urge motorists to drive responsibly and highlight the fact that at 20 mph a pedestrian is likely to survive a collision with a vehicle whilst at 40 mph nine out of ten will be killed.
- The Community Speed Watch Team will attempt to establish a record for the longest continuous speedwatch on Tuesday. Heart FM will be keeping regular updates
- The Police and Fire Service will be working with Broadclyst Primary School on Thursday. Heart FM will be reporting on site.
- X Factor Finalist Shelley Smith is due to visit the Primary School prior to her switching on the Christmas lights at Exeter’s Guildhall Centre on Thursday
- The Police and Fire Service will be working with Clyst Vale Community College on Friday.
Making Broadclyst Parish safer is the prime objective of the Broadclyst Traffic Group.
As commercial and residential developments are built on the periphery of the Parish, the already burgeoning traffic volumes continue to escalate. The Parish which lies within the Killerton Estate is a haven for cyclists, visitors, horse riders and walkers as well as 1,400 children attending schools.
