20 MPH Limit In Totton Or Marchwood?
I have checked, following a request for a 20 mph speed limit in a road in Totton, what Hampshire County Council proposes to do with any such requests.
The Assistant Manager for Traffic and Safety has told me that the authority are currently evaluating the effectiveness of pilot 20mph zones elsewhere in the county.
Once the technical review is complete, HCC will adopt a policy that will be informed by the experience of the pilots.
I personally think there is a strong case for some roads being restricted in the Totton South & Marchwood division, especially in places where there are schools or older people crossing from pavement to another.
I am sure we can all think of potential roads!
I realise there will be a cost involved and that enforcement is a big issue in these days of limited police resources, but I do hope that road safety is the biggest material consideration when deciding what to do……
