Dear Dumfries and Galloway Council,

How many villages/towns in Dumfries and Galloway deploy vehicle-activated systems with a digital speed display that can be read by the drivers of incoming vehicles?
Of those villages/towns in Dumfries and Galloway that deploy such systems, how many have undertaken traffic surveys within the last ten years to determine their effectiveness?
