Does anyone know what actual speed deterrents are going to be brought in place to actually enforce this – Wrexham drivers will interpret as largely optional – speed limit?
Is there going to be a speed camera zone allocated to it? Permanent speed camera? Police actually pulling people over for doing anything above 57 MPH? (10% speeding tolerance + 2mph rule) – when they are busy off to other locations of town where policing is actually needed.
Yes you are absolutely correct there. Even doing 31mph in a 30 area you can be nicked. There are many who have done the speed awareness course that will testify to that.
I just wonder how long is “Temporary” There’s little point in having a dual carriageway if you are limited to
a mere 50 mph. It’s far more dangerous to keep looking down at your speedometer taking your eyes off the road ahead all the while than it is to drive a normal dual carriageway speed.
That is very interesting to know AMA. There is a lot of confusion over this as other recent articles have suggested information to the contrary. So there is a lot of misinformation about. Probably best to stick to the limits just in case as a general rule.
I just have my serious doubts that 50mph is going to be religiously adhered to on the Wrexham to Gresford roundabout stretch unless drivers believe there’s a serious chance of them being caught out.
The good news is that the speedometer on most modern cars overestimates speeds over 30 mph by 2 or 3 mph. So, in most cases, albeit not all, if your speedo is showing 50mph, you’re probably only travelling at 47 – 49mph. This has been proven by using various SatNav units and radar as an accurate check.
