Cambridgeshire County Council is determined to introduce more 20mph schemes across the county, as a ‘proven way to improve road safety’.
There are two types of 20mph schemes which can be introduced by the council – 20mph limits and 20mph zones. A 20mph limit typically covers individual or a small number of streets and requires signs only, while 20mph zones cover larger areas and require both signs and markings. The council says the former are more cost effective, but the latter have been found to have a greater effect in reducing speed limits, especially when accompanied by traffic calming measures.
Catching those who choose to drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs ‘will always be a priority for officers’, whatever the time of year.
