Hounslow Council consultation on widespread 20mph speed limits
We support the introduction of 20mph speed limits as it greatly reduces the risk of injury on our roads and we hope many people will respond to the consultation in support of 20mph speed limits.
There has been some indication that the council is considering a reduction of speed limit on some Hounslow borough roads for a limited time during the day eg. during the working hours of schools. We urge the council to ensure that speed limits for a given street do not change hour by hour, but are constant 24hrs a day to promote their observation by all road users.
We urge the police to allocate resources to enforcing the speed limits on Hounslow borough roads in support of the council’s target of reducing the number of people injured on our roads 40% by 2020.
The cuts to police traffic departments is a wider issue that has been highlighted by the charity Break
