20mph limit plan for all residential areas, says First Minister
In the Senedd, First Minister, Mark Drakeford, has said that the Welsh Government believes that 20 miles an hour (mph) should be the default speed limit for all residential areas.
In June 2018, campaigners said Wales was lagging behind the rest of the UK when it came to reducing speed limits from 30mph to 20mph in built up areas.
Mark Drakeford said:
‘…we know that 20mph zones reduce speed of traffic, reduce accidents – particularly accidents to children, and we want to see that become the default position right across Wales.’
