"Drive Safe. Walk Safe. Cycle Safe."
We often get enquiries about the speed limits around the borough. Our advice is as follows: When you are driving, if you are unsure what the speed limit is, assume it is a thirty mile per hour limit. A new speed limit is marked by two large speed limit signs on both sides of the road. Once you pass through these signs, a road with a 30mph limit will have no further signs to tell you the limit is 30mph. On roads with a higher, or lower, limit there will be repeater signs on the lamp posts. So, remember, if there are no signs assume the limit is 30mph.
If you are concerned about speeding issues where you live, you can contact us on 01753 787541 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We will look into the matter and if we find there is a speeding problem we'll look at ways to reduce it.
If we decide engineering works are required to solve the speeding problem, these will be implemented, subject to consultation with affected residents and the availability of funds.
