C7 speed limit petitions

Share this article

A few weeks ago you reported that there was an online petition on the ESCC website proposing to reduce the speed limit on the whole length of the C7 road from Lewes to Newhaven to 40mph.

I would like to inform your readers that there is also a petition on the same website to oppose this reduction in the speed limit, seeing it as not the main cause of accidents on this road – as seems to have been the main motivation for the proposed reduction. The petition not to reduce the speed limit to 40mph on the C7 road can be found at http://epetition.eastsussex.public-i.tv/epetition_core/community/petition/2174
