I welcome news that the Assembly Government has issued guidance to local authorities in Wales encouraging the setting up of more 20 mph speed limit zones around schools and built up areas.
Back in May I urged Ieuan Wyn Jones to consider introducing 20 mph speed limits near recreation grounds and other areas frequented by young people.

Although the setting of appropriate speed limits is the responsibility of the local highway authority, I suggested the Assembly Government issue guidelines on this issue. To his credit, Ieuan Wyn has taken action that should increase the safety of children and young people in these zones.
