20 is plenty

Liberal Democrat campaigners in Torbay are challenging the Conservative council to introduce a new 20mph speed limit in residential areas around Torbay.

Chris Carter, a Local Lib Dem councillor, said “There are many residential streets in Torbay being used as ‘rat-runs’ for commuters and people looking to take short cuts. The increase in traffic and the speed at which it is moving poses a threat to children playing in the street, older people crossing and even pets are at risk. Torbay should be taking a lead in providing safer streets for all.”

Campaigners have started an online petition to introduce the new limit.
