Speed Limit Reductions


Recommended Posts

Living in Derbyshire I have noticed more and more roads are having their speed limits reduced.

These are mainly previously de restricted roads, A and B class, that have now been reduced to 40MPH or extensions of the 30 MPH zones. These appear on on almost daily basis sometimes accompanied by a new speed camera.

I asked Derbyshire County Council for reasons but it was basically unanswered.

Is this a nationwide trend or is it localised.

I assume to hit Government targets with RTA's this is the method used i.e less speed less accidents.

In preparation for further reductions I have purchased a red flag so my partner can walk in front of the car. :whistling:

Do you mean the roads to Chesterfield from Alfreton as they all came down recently too!

It is getting a bit silly - but saying that we're not as bad as Sheffield yet where the dual carriageways are 40mph - don't fancy doing that past Tesco on the A38!

Good point the police station is just behind Tesco so you'd be in trouble if they see you from there!

They can hear me from there though when I go past - not so bad now my exhaust isn't blowing :lol:
