20mph outside schools spurned by KCC

Kent County Council lack imagination and political will. There should be a blanket 20mph speed limit across all urban areas, not just outside schools.

The fact that no children were killed outside schools during the last 10 years is good to hear, but reinforces the need for a blanket urban speed limit of 20mph.

29 children still died while being pedestrians in the last 10 years, this is 29 too many. Urban speeds need to fall dramatically, there is no need to do 30mph in town.
