Traffic authorities to review local speed limits

1 August 2006

New guidance to assist local authorities in setting local speed limits has been published by the Department for Transport. The guidance, designed to promote greater clarity and consistency, covers the setting of all local speed limits on single and dual carriageway roads where drivers should adopt a different speed to the national limit.

Traffic Authorities have specifically been asked to review the speed limits on all of their A and B roads and implement any changes by 2011.
