A pilot scheme is to be run to test the effectiveness of special signs to encourage motorists to slow down.

The vehicle-activated signs are to be deployed throughout the year in parishes for a maximum of six weeks, removed for three months and then returned, Craven area committee was told.

The signs are triggered when speeds exceed 31mph in a 30 zone or 41mph in a 40 zone.

Twenty two locations have been identified in Craven where the devices could be set up.
