‘Tiny’ minority

Despite a vote from Worthing Herald readers recently where 83 per cent voted against the proposed 20’s plenty scheme a tiny minority of readers are still preaching that 83 per cent are wrong and 17 per cent are right.

In his letter Mr Carleysmith claims taking buses off certain routes, slowing taxi’s down, hence pushing up fares is of no importance (perhaps not to him).

He wrongly claims 20mph will reduce noise and pollution in fact it will increase both, firstly a car travelling at 30mph in fourth gear is quieter than a car doing 20 in second or third gear simply because the revolutions will be less.

Plus the pollution will also be less.

I can only assume that Mr Carleysmith has never driven a motor vehicle in his life.
