20mph zones are very effective at preventing injuries and Alex Lister and the Lib Dems would like to see them introduced in key areas locally.
20mph zones significantly decrease the risk of being injured in a collision and their greater use, especially in key spots, would help to reduce the number of traffic injuries in Canterbury North.
Kent County Council is responsible for determining where 20mph zones and limits should be introduced but we need to show there is a will to make it happen.
Consultation and engagement with local communities and other stakeholders is of vital importance, to make sure that safer roads are prioritised where needed and that local communities have input into the schemes development.
What do you think? Should we introduce 20mph speed limits in the local area around Chartham, Blean, Tyler Hill, Rough Common, and Chestfield?
