Roadsign

Speed Reader Boards are electronic signs that use radar to detect the speed of an approaching vehicle.  The board can be set to:

- record the data (with nothing displayed),  or

- record the data and display the speed.

The intent of the Speed Reader Board is to gather data on the speeds and volumes of motorists in an area. This allows the Saanich Police Traffic Safety Unit the ability to determine if there is a serious speeding issue in an area and deploy Officers appropriately.

The SPD Traffic Safety Unit provides the Speed Reader Board Reports, for members of the public to view, via our website.

The Speed Reader Board Reports (aka: Extended Speed Summary Reports) provide the following:

- The number of days’ data was collected over,

- The average speed,

- The average volume of motorists per day,

- The total number of vehicles speed was measured for, and

- The 85th percentile speed.

The boards gather data in one direction at a time. Doubling the volume data will give a good estimate of the total number of vehicles going in both directions.

The 85th percentile speed gives the speed at which 85% of motorists are travelling at or under. If you would like to get more information on the 85th percentile speed you can query it via your internet browser.

High risk driving behaviour, such as speeding, is a leading cause of crashes. The SPD Traffic Safety Unit ensures they’re targeting speed enforcement in designated high problem areas.  The Traffic Safety Unit will continue to conduct speed enforcement, as well as other traffic related enforcement, throughout the Municipality of Saanich.

 

If you witness a specific Motor Vehicle Act offence within Saanich, please click here or call our non-emergency number at 250-475-4321 to start a driving complaint. A complaint requires a description of the offending vehicle, a license plate number, and a statement detailing what has occurred.

Please note:
- All available Speed Reader Board Reports are published on our website
- The Saanich Police Traffic Safety Unit will determine where a Speed Reader Board will be deployed
