Serious Road Accident Injury In Shepway


Serious road accident injury in Shepway

Have you suffered significantly in a serious road accident injury in Shepway? The local district of Shepway is located in the county of Kent in England and there have been concerns raised about speed limit signs in the district by Councillor Brian Copping. Copping has specifically referred to the section of the A260 road between Dover Hill and the Park Farm Road roundabout as having unclear speed limits. This section of road has a 30 miles per hour speed limit and the Councillor has said that these signs are unclear and are easy to miss. It is notable that the speed limit increases to 60 miles per hour close to the roundabout.

He has told media outlets that this unclear signage is a risk for motorists and that engineers at the council should be making changes to the signs. The risk comes from drivers unaware of the lower speed limit tailgating other cars that are adhering to the speed limit and travelling under 30 miles per hour. This then forces cars to speed up to avoid car accidents but this increases the potential for being caught for breaking the speed limit by police speed cameras.

There is also the issue of vehicles that have come from Dover Hill that have been travelling at the speed limit on national roads but due to the unclear speed limit signs, they are not aware that the speed limit has fallen to 30 miles per hour.

The unclear speed limit signs issue was brought up by Councillor Copping at a meeting of the Shepway District Council and he was supported by his colleagues on the issue.

The Kent County Council has responded to the issue by stating that they will consider the request after assessing the risks and evaluating options to resolve the issue if needed. They will then report their chosen option to the local district transportation board.
