Wales Chooses More Poverty

Dr Vernon Coleman MB ChB DSc FRSA

The Welsh have put 50 mph limits on a number of their major roads. They are doing this because they say it will improve air quality.


Thatís very debatable.

Many cars use up less petrol/diesel at speeds above 60 mph, so lowering the speed limit will ensure that more fuel is burnt.

And that will surely damage air quality.

Moreover, a reduction in the speed limit on major roads will lead to more delays, more traffic jams, more frustration, more stress, more ill health and a lowering in productivity.

All this in a country which is already poor and getting poorer.

Madness, utter madness.
