Does Hartlepool need more 20mph speed limits on its roads?

Residents are being urged to have their say about plans to introduce 20mph speed limits in residential areas across Hartlepool.

It follows a recent investigation by Hartlepool Borough Council’s Neighbourhood Services Scrutiny Forum which backed the idea and recommended town-wide consultation.

The programme, known as ‘20’s Plenty’, has been used in a number of towns and cities across the country to improve road safety and is focused on changing behaviour rather than introducing physical traffic calming measures.
