Speed limit reduction on all urban roads

0

THE Spanish Traffic Department has announced plans to reduce the speed limit on all urban roads with one lane in each direction and one-way streets with just one lane to 30kph. On most such roads, the limit is currently 50kph.

The General Director, Pere Navarro, justified the measure by saying that 50 per cent of pedestrian survive being hit by a car at 50kph, but 95 per cent survive a 30kph impact.
