New warning signs have been introduced to alert drivers to 20mph limits that have been enforced throughout Bath.

Twerton and Southdown are the first two regions to have the lower speed zones, with 20mph road signs installed to remind drivers, according to

Roger Symonds, the authority's cabinet member for transport, told the website: "It is to make roads safer and to give communities back their roads and their outside spaces so if you live on a road you don’t have to think traffic will be going through at 30mph."

Mr Symonds explained that the hope is to persuade people to consider travelling at 20mph, rather than 30mph, which will be an important cultural change for many.

Across the UK, safety signs have been introduced to lower the likelihood of injuries on the roads.

The Scunthorpe Telegraph has reported that new notices have been fitted in Winterton to stop the confusion caused by road humps in the region.

They will read "stop, look and listen", alerting people that cars do not need to give way for them when they cross the road.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801463969-ADNFCR
