Surrey County Council, following a trial period, have made the 20mph advisory speed limits outside Newdigate Infant School, Fetcham Village Infant School & Oakfield Junior School, and St Giles Infant School Ashtead permanent. They have, however, decided not to extend the 20mph advisory speed limits to roads outside any other schools in the district.
This decision has been made despite clear evidence that 20mph speed limits outside schools significantly enhance safety and reduce the risk of serious accidents involving school children.
As a result, the Liberal Democrat team have launched a petition calling on Surrey County Council to introduce an advisory 20mph speed limit outside St Martin’s School in Ranmore Road similar to the 20mph advisory speed limits that have now been made permanent.
