Why the confusion over 20mph zone?

IT has been reported (Journal, January 9) that a bid to expand the 20mph limit zone in Salisbury has been turned down by Wiltshire Council.

In a consultation conducted by the council it was said that since the Salisbury city centre 20mph zone was introduced casualties had been reduced by 46 per cent over a three-year period.

However, in a paper to the committee, Wiltshire Council officers stated that “there was little evidence of casualty reduction since the 20mph zones were installed”.

So someone is presenting grossly misleading evidence and should be held to account.

Sound judgement on issues cannot be achieved if our councillors are misinformed.

Perhaps if Wiltshire council published the figures then the general public could make up their own minds, at the next election.
