Petition demanding Welsh Government reverse 'disastrous' 20mph speed limit ... trends now
A petition demanding the Welsh government to reverse its 'disastrous' 20mph speed limit rollout has got more than 260,000 signatures - equal to eight per cent of the country's population.
The new law, which came into force on September 17, was introduced by the Labour run government who claims the £32million rollout of 20mph limits will save lives and cut NHS costs by £92million a year.
But furious residents in Wales have demanded the rollout be stopped as they say the government's claim of saving lives lacks evidence and will make 'no difference' to road traffic collisions (RTC's).
The petition, which will keep collecting signatures until March 13, 2024, has so far received a record-breaking figure of more than 262,000 signatures.
The number stood at 200,000 by 6pm last night, meaning supporters are rising significantly as more motorists revolt against the move.
