CC Jewell blasts residents speeding on their own streets

by markjewell on 9 June, 2011

County Councillor Mark Jewell, has blasted his own constituents who do not observe the 20mph speed limit on Larches. CC Jewell has been a key campaigner for 20mph limits and represents Ashton, Larches and Savick.

 Larches is one of three areas across Lancashire that is currently the pilot for sign only 20mph limits. The aim of the County Council is to deliver 20mph sign only speed limits in all residential areas and outside all schools by 2013.

CC Jewell said, “the initial report on the scheme highlighted a small decrease in average speeds across the estate. It also showed that the majority of people thought the speed limit had made the estate safer. There will be a further report, expected in October, after the scheme has been in place for more than a year.”

He added, “We know from police checks and other research that some residents who live in the area do not observe the 20mph speed limit. The facts are that hitting a child at 30mph will lead to a high chance of them being killed or seriously injured. If a child is hit at 20mph the chances of survival are significantly greater.  

“Local residents should be aware that this speed limit is enforceable. You will get points on your licence if caught or worse if you are involved in an accident.  No–one wants Lancashire to be peppered with speed humps and we simply could not afford it. Local residents must take responsibility for observing this speed limit so that it becomes socially unacceptable to speed above 20mph in residential areas.” 

20mph speed limits will be the norm on every residential road in Lancashire by 2013.
