Speeding and 20's Plenty!

Going back a little while we had a successful campaign called 20's Plenty calling for 20 mph speed limits in residential areas to make roads safer and improve people's quality of life. Following on from this campaign the Council signed up to a national road safety campaign, obtained some speed measuring equipment and responded to residents complaints about speeding traffic by going and measuring the speed of the traffic with its new equipment -- rather than just waiting for an accident to happen. The Council has now published the first set of figures from this campaign and produced a report.

According to the report, the Council are also issuing posters similar to the ones we produced, to residents who request them. Unfortunately, the main plank of the campaign was for 20 mph zones where people wanted them which we still do not have.
