Speed limits will be cut and there’ll be an increase the number of speed cameras on Nottinghamshire’s roads in an attempt to bring down the number of people killed or injured in the county.
Notts TV reports that Nottinghamshire County Council aims to reduce the number of casualties by 40% in the next decade – from 286 in 2020 to no more than 171 in 2030, which it explains is a continuation of the authority’s previous goal, which saw the average number of road deaths and injuries fall by 45% in the decade up to last year.
The report says the move was discussed at the council’s transport and environment committee on 19 July and received unanimous backing from councillors.
A report to the meeting said the council will support more speed enforcement, community speedwatch schemes, safety cameras and highway improvement schemes to make roads safer.
