Speed limit re-think

9 March 2009

The Times reports that the speed limit may be cut from 60mph to 50mph on thousands of rural roads without any change to signs, leaving unsuspecting drivers at risk of prosecution.

There are already some rural roads where the speed limit for all vehicles is 50mph, however RoadSafe, which is a founder member of The Campaign for Safer Road Design believes that such a measure on its own would do little to reduce crashes. What is needed is a wholesale re-design of unsafe roads.
