MONMOUTH Assembly Member Nick Ramsay has signed an online petition set up to campaign for a 20mph speed limit for Usk without road humps.
Speaking recently, Mr Ramsay said:
”We are all aware of the dangers of walking along the narrow pavements of Bridge Street and feel it would be much safer if the current speed limit was reduced to 20mph – 30mph is just too fast.
“Evidence has also shown that calmer driving is not only safer but also reduces vehicle pollution.
“I am fully supporting this community-led campaign, which has the backing of local police and the town council, and would urge anyone who would like to add their name to the petition to do so via http://chn.ge/1nnhVMu
“This is a lovely historic town and it would be a shame if people were put off visiting Usk because they felt unsafe walking along its streets.”
