Why the confusion over 20mph zone?
3:53pm Friday 17th January 2014 in Salisbury Letters
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.
