Reduced speed limit of 20mph near schools in Leeds

Lower speed limits are to be introduced outside schools in Leeds in a bid to reduce casualties.

Last year Leeds City Council introduced a 20mph speed limit outside six schools in the city and is now introducing the measure to a further 16.

The council said evidence had shown that a reduced speed limit had shown a significant reduction in accidents.

It is expected that the 20mph scheme will be fully introduced before the end of the year.
