The Welsh government can set the speed limits to whatever they like! The crucial bit, is how effective it's going to be going forwards, which ultimately comes down to how well it's going to be policed.

Unfortunately, there are not enough police on our roads to be able to police this effectively, and whilst this change has been brought in, in an attempt to reduce accidents and risk to live, it's down to us individuals to do the right thing and abide by it. 

Unfortunately, once again, as many have already mentioned, people do whatever they like on the roads these days, and again, there aren't currently enough police on our roads to tackle the existing problems on our roads, let along trying to enforce by catching drivers speeding above 20mph.

Inner cities, towns, around schools and area's where streets are narrow, parking is an issue etc etc, 20mph is definitely going to help for sure, but on the outskirts of cities, towns and even villages where residential areas are at minimum, I just don't get it.

Add in the poor attempt at implementing this with poor signage, or not even updating existing signage, it's just smacks extremely poor planning.

There are a lot more (well there were a lot more) 30 mph roads than 20 mph roads than 30 mph so it stands to reason there will be more fatalities on these roads. I dare say there are less pedestrians killed and injured on motor ways then there are on 20 mph and 30 mph roads? See how easy it is to bend  stats to your view point

firefighters and other emergency workers castguard paramedics etc are saying theyre arriving late to their work places or fire stations as a result of the 20 mph to get to work in the 1st place.....fires dont wait for speed cameras....Yet another of the infinite negative scenarios not considered by the welsh govt

The Welsh government have passed a law saying that they can impose tolls and ULEZ areas in Wales although labour says it has no intention to do so Drakeford also said that Elvis is alive and lives in Porthcawl and the tooth fairy is to be taxed on her earnings.
