20 mph

Has the recent 20 mph restrictions on Hebden Bridge roads come into force yet? If it has then I think you can say that i'ts not working or even been enforced.

I believe it has. I've certainly been following it.

It is my understanding the police do not enforce 20mph a fact a number people are not being made aware of.

Well Emily if the police don't enforce the 20 mph why have I been pulled up by a police radar gun on my way to Halifax?

Having followed a police vehicle in a line of traffic doing a steady 30mph through Hebden this morning, I think it's safe to say this ridiculous waste of money isn't and never will be enforced!

Even if the 20mph zone is not enforced, it sends the message that high speeds are not appropriate in areas where there are likely to be many pedestrians (and other vulnerable road users). If someone is injured by a vehicle travelling over 30 mph in a 20 zone the vehicle driver is more likely to be charged with dangerous driving rather than driving without due care and attention (which carries lower penalties).

It winds me up when 20mph zones are signed but not enforced. It trains people to ignore speed limit signs in general.
