Lower speed limits advised for roads with crash history
The DfT has today (16 December) issued guidance to local authorities to cut the speed limit on roads with a history of crashes and collisions, according to a BBC News report.
The department wants the national speed limit of 60mph lowered to 50mph on selected main roads in rural areas, and is also advising local authorities to introduce 20mph zones in residential areas and near schools.
The BBC News website has launched an interactive map which plots the location of every death on the roads in the last decade, to allow users to examine collision blackspots near where they live.
