We can see that within our patch we have managed to reduce the deaths from

 

41 Animals down to 33 with the number of injured rising from three to six.  This demonstrates to me that Speedwatch is having an effect on the way people drive within our patch.

 

Now when we look at the surrounding moorland which lies outside of our own patch we see that in 2017 we had 73 animals killed which has now risen to 101 with the number injured rising from 16 up to 21. 

 

Quick view of results from Jan 1st to October 16th.

This I feel demonstrates that the poor driving behaviour is slowly getting worse in those areas where there is no proper means of control.  Looking at this data collected over an 18 month period there seems to be no option except to introduce a 40mph speed limit on all unfenced roads across Dartmoor.

161 RTA’s with a total of 134 dead and 27 injured
