For immediate release.
“We campaigned against Bristol Council's ineffective and wasteful 20mph limits, but they went ahead regardless. One of our arguments was that the £2.3 million could be better spent on more effective safety measures, notably including more crossing patrols.
Now they plan to scrap all crossing patrols. Removing crossing patrols is a dangerous step which could result in the very accidents the council and their 20 mph advocates are keen to prevent.
Well-meaning but ill-advised 20 limit campaigners must realise that money diverted to ineffective 20 limits will inevitably reduce the overall road safety budget which could result in death or injury.”
