Call for 20 mph zones in residential streets

Earlier this week, I reiterated my view that there is significant support from residents for 20mph speed limits in highly residential areas.

This morning's "Courier" covers my comments on this issue and my view that the City Council is dragging its feet on the matter.  This is very starkly different to the proactive approach of other councils – Edinburgh, Fife and Angus for example – have been proactive.    Just look at the Angus/Dundee boundary at Monifieth – Navarre/East Navarre Street – both highly residential – 20 on the Angus side;  30 on the Dundee side.   

20s Plenty need not be expensive – advisory signage and some road marking.  I am wholly against expensive engineering measures like speed bumps.

I also spoke with Wave 102 News about the matter this morning and you can hear the interview by clicking 'play' below:
