This week’s Lancaster Guardian reveals that there have been no prosecutions of drivers who exceed the 20mph speed limit which has (supposedly) been in force across Lancashire’s residential areas since 2011. The police say that cannot afford to buy the necessary cameras. Meanwhile, Lancashire saw a 14% increase last year in the number of people killed and seriously injured on our roads.
Dynamo was heavily involved in the campaign to get 20mph speed limits introduced, and since then we have written several times to complain of the lack of enforcement. The limits were originally introduced because Lancashire had one of the worst road casualty rates for children in Britain.
So, one more to follow up.
