What peo­ple said about 20mph lim­its

Sunday Herald - - TRANSPORT -

“IN the town where we live, a two year old girl was killed, af­ter be­ing struck by a car. She was walk­ing on a pave­ment with her sib­lings. If there were a 20mph limit this wouldn’t have hap­pened. Do not let an­other in­no­cent child be a vic­tim.” (Anony­mous) “A pupil from my school was knocked down and killed last year on a road with a speed limit of 30mph. I won­der if a 20mph limit could have given a very dif­fer­ent out­come.” (Anony­mous) “I’M the par­ent of two chil­dren who were struck by a ve­hi­cle trav­el­ling fast in a res­i­den­tial area while they were walk­ing to school with their mother. I think the views of my chil­dren and all oth­ers in traf­fic de­ci­sions are woe­fully un­der-rep­re­sented. If you asked them, they’d say that they want a 20 mph limit.” (Anony­mous) “I HAVE been in­volved in a road safety cam­paign which had the sup­port of the lo­cal coun­cil, po­lice, lo­cal school, politi­cians etc but the real stum­bling block was that we couldn’t change the law which made some of the things we wanted to do im­pos­si­ble.” (Anony­mous)
