An agency brand has partnered with Sticklepath Parish Council to promote safer driving and lower speed limits.
Stevens Estate Agents in Okehampton is using its own agency boards to help promote Sticklepath Parish Council’s ‘20’s Plenty’ campaign for road safety.
The village of Sticklepath sits on the northern edge of Dartmoor National Park and attracts walkers, cyclists and other visitors.
With its primary school, village shop, village hall, children’s play area, recreation ground, pub and church, the small community is embracing the ‘20’s Plenty’ movement to reduce the speed of traffic on residential roads.
Sticklepath Parish Council wanted an eye-catching and memorable way to promote the campaign to road users. Similar campaigns in other areas successfully utilise estate agency boards.
James Stevens, director of Stevens’ Estate Agents, said: “We’re really pleased to have been asked to help promote the speed reduction scheme in Sticklepath.
“The speed limit on the road through the village is actually 30mph, but it isn’t always adhered to.
“This limited timescale campaign is designed to grab drivers’ attention to get them to think about their speed. We’ve had a new board designed and made especially for the project – they’re different to our normal house-shaped boards but use the same colours incorporating the ‘20’s plenty’ logo.”
Derek Moore, vice chair of Sticklepath Parish Council, added: “We have already seen some change in driving behaviour through the village because of the signs, which are distinctive and different. We are grateful to Stevens’ for their support and for the impact they can have with this local safety campaign.”
