Rejected petition Scrap the plans to introduce 20mph limits
Currently 30mph is unenforceable, train services unreliable and buses stuck on the same traffic jams. Slowing cars to 20mph will increase journey times, causing harm to those who have health issues preventing them from being stuck in long journeys. The current cost of living crisis - shouldn't welsh government use this money they found to implement this nonsense change to instead help those in need instead of wasting it on an unenforceable plan?
Currently welsh government is introducing a new metro with no trains, forcing those who medically can't last a long journey without access to loo off the train system, providing no extra or new bus routes and now causing all road journeys to be longer than needed. The money this will take could be better used on helping the people of Wales with the cost of living issues, adding better enforcement to the suitable 30mph (which in most cases is ignored and causing accidents) or other priorities that the people of Wales wants. Welsh government claims to be standing up for us, but all its doing is flexing muscles where it doesn't need to instead of working with Westminster to actually help Wales grow.
Why was this petition rejected?
There’s already a petition about this issue. We cannot accept a new petition when we already have one about a very similar issue, or if the Petitions Committee has considered one in the last year.
A very similar petition was considered by the Committee earlier this year. However, I have just published a different petition - "Hold a public poll on the reduction of the default speed limit BEFORE it comes in to force" - which might be of interest.
We only reject petitions that don’t meet the petition standards
