I live in Merthyr and the impact on my drive to Newport / Bristol / Abergavenny / Monmouth / C***iff / Swansea etc etc will be very little to none (as would be from any of the others to the others) However, getting from one side of the town to the other may take me a minute or two extra. Whoopdie bloody doo.
Oh, and it’s not just “Drakeford and his cronies” that decide how fast/slow the speed limit is, that’s what governments do mate. Professional driver or not, it’s their job to decide, not yours.
Yes. Quite. You pathetic *******
30mph to 20mph in a city/town kind of makes sense I suppose but if it's all about safety and emissions then why is it arbitrarily applied to rural villages? Cardiff will have a ULEZ style scheme in the next 2 years like Bristol city centre already has. I'd wager Newport will soon have one too.
