We’re currently introducing a new design and are making sure everything works.
Speed limits, humps and traffic calming
Speed is a significant factor in about one third of road accidents in the United Kingdom.
Measures for influencing the speed of vehicles generally fall into 2 categories
Speed limits fall into the first category whereas traffic calming devices fall into the second.
Speed limits are introduced to ensure greater road safety.
Comprehensive information on the speed limits you would expect to come across on the different category of road is given in chart form in The Highway Code.
