Cost of 20mph

Forget Duncan Kay’s fairyland annual £12million cost for not implementing his Worthing wide 20’s Plenty scheme stated in the Herald two weeks ago.

I asked the following freedom of information question of Portsmouth City Council: What budget savings have been made directly due to the implementation of your city wide 20 mph zoning?

The Portsmouth City Council PA and business support officer to the head of transport and environment replied, “I have been informed that no savings were made from implementing the 20mph zones in Portsmouth.”

If additional enforcement measures are required, it will actually cost more.
