IT IS a myth that lower speed limits benefit residents of an area where they are introduced.

Yes the traffic moves more slowly but that creates even bigger jams and therefore more pollution - just ask Welsh residents who have had it imposed on them.

Furthermore for a council in such dire financial straights have they any idea how much it will cost to change all the signs and put up new ones as well as painting more signs on the road?

How on earth are they going to fund such a scheme when they are cutting so many essential services?

Please councillors stick to giving your residents reliable basic services at a decent price, traffic here in Poole is bad enough without you making it worse.
