Many County Councils are imposing without proper consultation 50 and 40 mph limits on good roads because the the can and to reduce accidents.  One county in particular, Oxfordshire, unless you are on the major trunk roads, the county is rapidly reducing speed limits throughout rural areas and former A roads.

Examples are A4421, A417, A4260 and many many rural roads.

 

 

Why is this idea important?

Imposing such limits does not reduce accidents – it probabily increases them and businesses and commuters find these roads counter-productive along with measures such as blocking one lane and road humps.
