40mph Speed Limit on Unclassified roads in Cornwall

40mph  Speed Limit on Unclassified roads in Cornwall

To make all unclassified roads in Cornwall 40mph with more 30mph zones in residential areas. With additional signage, warning drivers that these roads are used by many vulnerable road users. like walkers, runners, cyclists and horse riders.

Why is this important?

Many vulnerable road users, such as walkers both adult and children, runners, cyclists and horse riders, regularly use the unclassified roads that link villages and public rights of way. Since the national speed limits were set in the mid 60's there has been a massive increase in car ownership consequently the original speed limits are no longer fit for purpose. Country roads need to be safe for everyone to use.
