A council call for police to enforce Oxford’s 20mph speed limits has been rejected.It seems they have far better things to do.
A senior officer spoke out after Oxford City Council passed a motion urging Thames Valley Police to crack down on speeding drivers.
And they made it plain right from the start:
A 20mph limit was brought in on almost all residential roads and some main routes in September 2009 but police said from the outset they would not be actively enforced.Which didn’t please the local councillors:
Liberal Democrat Alan Armitage, who put the motion, said: “It doesn’t say much for the police that they don’t give a damn what the people think. ”And councillors, Mr Armitage? How much do they care what the people think?
