20 mph zones across the whole of Wales
The vehicle’s limitations – a short range, a maximum speed of only 15 miles per hour (24 km/h), a battery that ran down quickly and a lack of weatherproofing – made it impractical for most people’s needs.
Commenting on the news regarding 20mph zones across Wales, Welsh Conservatives Shadow Transport Minister, Natasha Asghar MS said:
“Welsh Conservatives continue to support 20mph speed limits in heavily pedestrianised areas, such as outside schools and hospitals.
“Nevertheless, we cannot support blanket 20mph zones across the whole of Wales, which will slow Wales down and cost the Welsh economy £4.5bn. This ludicrous blanket policy must be scrapped.”
