I was amused to see JP Saville accuse Duncan of “biased and misjudged comments” when he then went on to say it wasn’t about speed but about road safety and that we would never see our children walking to school!
There are other social issues here, not just traffic. He then goes on to mention ‘road collisions all caused by excess speed’.
I wonder how he knows that for a fact. I understand that in other areas that have introduced 20mph that there has been an increase in accidents. Then, to say that ‘The UK stands alone in Europe as the one nation that seems to tolerate driving with excess speed as part of our culture.’ Please check your facts. try www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Speed_limits_by_country
