Submission on Dublin City Council Special Speed Limit Bye-Laws Review 2019
The Love30 campaign made a submission to Dublin City Council Special Speed Limit Bye-Laws Review 2019
Love30 commends Dublin City Council for its proposal to extend 30 km/h speed limits to all residential areas, especially as this can be seen to give a lead to Local Authorities throughout the State, but we are disappointed that there are no proposals to reduce 50 and 60 km/h speed limit on arterial roads or to increase the number of periodic 30 km/h limits outside schools.
The main points of the submission are:
- Love30 welcomes the expansion of 30 km/h speed limits to all residential areas in Dublin City
- Love30 is disappointed, however, not to see any proposals to reduce speed limits on distributor/arterial roads.
- Love30 regrets the failure to increase the low number of periodic speed limits outside schools
- Love30 recommends a heightened and continuous publicity campaign to drive home the message of lower speeds and a safer city
- Love30 recommends a variety of speed reducing mechanisms be trialled to support compliance with the new limits.
- Love30 requests the Garda to carry out occasional speed checks in the designated lower speed zones, and compile reports on the results of the checks.
- Love30 requests that the collection and compilation of all collision records be systemised for the Dublin City area to support the validation of the lower speed limit zones.
