Quotes in favour of 20mph from a Colchester Council debate:
The county council made it clear it would not fund any further proposals until ... the results of the experiments in about a year, so we are stuck. Chelmsford can get almost anything; Colchester can’t.
Cllr Martin Hunt, Lib Dem, Colchester Borough Council
Local people should be directing what happens in their areas. It [speeds over 20mph] is a hazard for their children. They have to deal with the aftermath of speeding motorists.
Cllr Dennis Willetts, Conservative, Colchester Borough Council
