Worthing residents have shot down proposals for new 20mph speed limits across the town.
More than two thirds of people asked by West Sussex County Council about plans to reduce the speed limit said ‘no’ following a three-month, £26,000 consultation.A resounding triumph!
Council chiefs will decide what to do next at a committee meeting.I’d have thought that was obvious…
Needless to say, toys are exiting prams at warp velocity:
Duncan Kay, of pro-20mph group 20’s Plenty, said Worthing residents stood to lose the chance for safer streets because of scaremongering, threats of bus cuts and the “failure” of the council to properly explain the benefits.Go on, Duncan, stamp those feet! Screw up that face until the tears flow!
He added that threats from bus company Compass Travel to cut services if the plans went ahead were never justified and that children, young people, minority groups and those with disabilities were not included on consultation steering groups.“Waaaah! Won’t someone think of the identity politics groups!!”
