20mph speed limit failure

20mph speed limit failure

The Council’s own survey has found that on roads where the speed limit has been cut from 30mph to 20mph the impact has been negligible. Overall they found a reduction in speed of just half a mile an hour – very much within the “margin of error”. Many of the streets in the Council’s sample where the speed limit had been cut found that average speeds have increased – for instance Dalling Road and Rivercourt Road.
