20’s Plenty for Hertfordshire are Blowing the Whistle on Herts County Council’s Speed Management Consultation
The setting of speed limits should be based on the needs and desires of people to live in and move around their communities safely. At the present time, Herts County Council (HCC) sets speed limits by reference to the existing speed of traffic. The Speed Management Strategy (SMS) gives no consideration to the importance of road safety, air quality or the boost to active transport that 20mph areas bring to communities. Please read the attached document from the 20’s Plenty Hertfordshire Campaign for further information.
