New high-tech road signs on the Standing Stane Road

Detectors at the new road signs can calculate the distance between vehicles and also identify when other vehicles are approaching the junctions.

Steve Sellars, road safety and travel planning lead professional said: “We hope that drivers will take notice of the messages being displayed and help make the route a safer one for everyone.

"It's important everyone drives in a responsible way. These signs will provide drivers with a high-profile reminder."
