Plans to make 20mph speed limits the maximum speed in residential areas have received initial backing in the Senedd.

“Whilst we have made progress on reducing deaths on our roads in the 21 years of devolution, despite our considerable efforts there are still 4,000 accidents which result in injuries every year in Wales,” he said.

“The evidence is clear, reducing speeds reduces accidents, reducing speed saves lives and slower speeds in our communities improves quality of life.”

Herefordshire Council has previously explored the idea, as recently as March of this year.
