Blinding Road Speed Sign

Reported via desktop in the Damaged Traffic Calming Feature category anonymously at 12:36, Tuesday 4 January 2022

Sent to Rutland County Council less than a minute later

The speed warning sign (entering the village from Morcott) is too bright at night when speeds are below 30mph. This is blinding and a distraction to driving and needs dimming so that the warning sign can be seen but does not cause the distraction to road users.

  • Has this been investigated, the sign is noticeably brighter than any other I have seen, and dangerous at night as the green is dazzling. it is slightly better if you drive at 31 and its displays the speed in red.

  • Please will you address this issue - the sign is far too bright and is dangerous to drivers at night time.

  • Hi,

    The above issue of the blinding road sign has also been reported by a number of our drivers. The light is too bright and at a height that dazzles a lorry driver. Please may the sign be dimmed as a matter of urgency?

    Many thanks, Charlotte C.S. Ellis Group Ltd.
