Jacksonville Road Speed Study

From July 22, 2022 through August 9, 2022, the Hatboro Police Department conducted a speed study in the upper 200 block of Jacksonville Road.

Jacksonville Road is a state highway (Route 332) with a posted speed limit of 35 MPH. The following data was obtained via passive speed detection equipment:

Average Speed: 29.46 MPH
85th Percentile Speed: 35.44 MPH

Average Speed: 30.73 MPH
85th Percentile Speed: 38.95 MPH

Average Speed: 30.10 MPH
85th Percentile Speed: 37.20 MPH

The enforcement threshold on this road is speeds over 45 MPH. Based on the data from this speed study, as well as a review of crash data, there is no evidence to support a speeding problem.  In fact, the average speed is actually under the 35 MPH limit and the 85th percentile is within 3 MPH of the limit.
