Residents have been asked for their views on proposals to change the speed of traffic, which could make it easier for 20mph zones to be created on local roads.

Herts county council (HCC) has launched a consultation on its proposed new speed management strategy which, if approved, could also result in the introduction of a rural speed limit, most likely 40mph.

The public consultation ends on Friday November 22 with a final strategy for the county to be proposed in February.

Cllr Terry Douris, cabinet member for highways, said: “We know people are concerned about speeding traffic and we want to make sure that we can put appropriate limits in place. But first we want to hear people’s views.”

Chief Inspector Richard Hann, of the Beds, Cambs and Herts Road Policing Unit, said that getting speed limits right was crucial to making county roads as safe as possible.
