Blanket 20mph limit in city would save money
Councillor Webber for the Tories voices his opposition to the proposed 20mph limit in Bath with statements which are quite obviously wrong.
He says it will not make any difference in Abbey Ward.
He should stand in Great Pulteney Street and St John's Road and see for himself the speeding cars.
He could also watch the taxis push the limit throughout the centre.

A reduction to 20mph will reduce speed as proven by Ministry of Transport surveys and as proven elsewhere walking and cycling journeys will go up.
He also says law-abiding drivers will be the cause of unnecessary inconvenience to those held up behind them.
Is that any reason to increase speed limits? What about those who now drive over 30mph?
Does Councillor Webber feel sorry for their inconvenience and speed up?
He also tries to represent the police by saying they will not enforce the limit. Of course they will, it is their duty.
We do agree with Councillor Webber on the high cost. A blanket 20mph limit for the whole of Bath would save many hundreds of thousands of pounds and be clearer to manage. Maybe the Tories could support that.
