The ITV is reporting that a campaign to enforce 20mph speed limits outside schools in Wales gets underway today.
GoSafe, a partnership between Welsh local authorities, police forces and the Welsh Government, will warn that despite 20mph speed limits being a routine part of everyday driving, there is still a “flagrant disregard” of those limits.
“Our continued focus on 20mph limits around schools is part of our commitment to safer communities, and to protect the most vulnerable road users; our children.”
“We want the support of all drivers, and we want compliance with 20 mph limits to become the norm.”
– CHRIS HUME, PARTNERSHIP MANAGER AT GOSAFE
“We want motorists to be aware of vulnerable road users, and this campaign will hopefully highlight that speed limits such as 20mph limits are there for a reason.”
– POLICE SARGEANT IAN PRICE, DYFED-POWYS POLICE
