Stop local authorities from spending money on dangerous and/or wasteful ‘traffic calming’

Comment 18th August 2010

Local authorities should not be spending ratepayers' money on wasteful 'traffic calming' schemes.

In particular, chicanes which force motorists to 'play chicken' with vehicles coming towards them should be banned.

Chicanes which force cylclists into the path of other vehicles should also be banned, as should any schemes which are at risk of causing accidents in snow, fog or other bad weather.

Road humps should be banned. These cause damage to vehicles, people's backs and the environment, the latter because they increase vehicle maintenance requirements, road repairs, and they cause rapid slowing down and speeding up which is the worst way of driving economically.


Why does this matter?

Safety and the protection of the environment.
