Modify 20mph Limits Near Schools To When Appropriate

Comment 15th July 2010

Most existing 20mph limits are permanent 24/7/365. Not that many chidren attend school e.g at 2.00 am or on Christmas Day.

A few miles from here is a 40mph limit near a school. There are orange flashing lights which are switched on during approriate times. The lights have a notice on their pole which says that the speed limit is reduced to 20mph when the lights are lit. All such limits should be of this type.

Why does this matter?

Reasonable restrictions gain respect from most road users. Unreasonable ones tend to be ignored and thus may not give all the protection intended.
