I live on a very busy country Lane. The limit is 40MPH. The Lane has no footpath is single track in places and has a private senior school with 1000 plus pupils and loads of buses going down it. It is also a major short cut to a big London spur road. Every year the road suffers many RTA's. Our local council will NOT lower the limit to 30MPH despite endless campaigning. AIBU to feel a bit bloody angry that less than 24 hrs after a royal person has a road crash, a council quite sensibly can reduce an upper speed limit to save lives?
If you read this you will see that a meeting of Norfolk Council had already proposed measures to reduce the speed limit and install speed cameras. The meeting today was to make a decision about those measures.
Apparently the meeting had been due this morning anyway and this was on the agenda due to the number of accidents on that stretch. I suspect the crash yesterday made approving it a foregone conclusion, though!
I just wonder by this, how many non-royal people have to get hurt before councils sit up and listen!!!?
Have you not bothered to read the replies or are you so desperate to score points? There is a coincidence regarding the accident and the meeting, go and check the local council's records, maybe that will get you off your soap-box.
