Drivers face speed-camera blitz as more road limits are reduced to 20mph

Daily Mail, December 16
Author: Ray Massey

Motorists face a new speed-camera blitz under Government plans to widen the use of 20mph limits. Whole neighbourhoods will be given the limits in a plan intended to reduce casualties among pedestrians and cyclists.

The Government wants to encourage councils to introduce the 20mph schemes into areas where cycle and pedestrian traffic is high, such as around schools, shops and parks.

[If governments are serious about pedestrian safety, speed limits will need to be reduced, as they are increasingly widely in the UK. -MH]
