This being 'Soft Top Sunday' at Goodwood Motor Racing Circuit, Parish Councillor David Imlach was on duty by the Post Office to monitor the behaviour of motorists passing through Cocking.
He seemed to think that average speeds today were lower than on previous such events and put this down partly to the upgrading of the southbound speed sign that now shows the '30' symbol.
Whatever the reason this was another example of the Parish Council taking the issue of speeding through the village seriously.
It now remains to be seen whether the Festival of Speed (26 - 29 June) will lead to inconsiderate driving through the village or just the traditional congestion.
And the fastest vehicle through the village this morning was ...
One of the many bikes that were also out and on the road early.
