For immediate release.
“Blackfriars Bridge is a wide bridge with two traffic lanes in each direction, each with a dedicated cycle lane, the pavements are also very wide. There is absolutely no justification for a 20mph speed limit.”The ABD is very concerned that inappropriate use of 20mph speed limits is seriously compromising road safety.
“Whilst 20 mph speed limits may be appropriate in a limited number of places where roads are very narrow, or at specific times outside schools, imposing them on inappropriate roads undermines respect for speed limits in general. This has consequences elsewhere which are not considered by those who make such decisions.”
