Central Bedfordshire Council to reconsider 20mph speed limits due to unecessary danger to motorists
I feel the recent enforcement of 20mph speed limits in Dunstable is unacceptable, and is putting the safety of road users in further danger. By abiding by the new speed limit, I myself and others, are now contesting with people overtaking or driving far too close behind us who are either unaware of the speed limit due to poor documentation or are just plain ignoring it. I also find that travelling at 20 is an unnatural speed and very difficult to maintain, and I am now finding myself concentrating more on keeping my speedometer at 20 to avoid a speeding fine, than I am concentrating on the road ahead of me. I agree that some do drive far too fast exceeding the previous 30mph speed limit, and yes I feel that these should be dealt with for causing dangerous situations, however lowering the speed limit is not dealing with these people and is only putting sensible road users in more potential danger. If you agree with the above and feel that the above situation should be reconsidered, please leave a signature and petition for change. Thanks for your support.
