Stirling SNP have announced a pledge to implement safer speed limits for residential areas across the Stirling Council area. The announcement comes as campaigning is underway for the 2017 Local Government election which is taking place in May this year.
A 20 MPH speed limit has been tried and tested in Edinburgh and elsewhere. Stirling SNP’s Council Group are keen to promote this where this can be made workable across the Stirling area.
Commenting, SNP Environment and Housing Spokesperson Councillor Jim Thomson said:
“It is important that we look to act on the concerns many communities have about the safety of current speed limits in their residential areas.
We already have ‘Twenty’s Plenty’ in a number of places across the Stirling area and it has been effective in ensuring a safe environment where people live and children play. That is why, if the SNP are elected to serve as the Administration on Stirling Council in May, we will commit to implementing safer speed limits where they have the potential to really improve the safety of our communities.”
