Ealing road needs better signage to warn of speed change

An Ealing road should carry better signage to warn drivers of a change in speed limits, according to one motorist.

Antoine D'Ettore was caught by a speed gun on Church Road last year, and claims that the current set-up on this dual carriageway is "misleading".

He told the Ealing Gazette that more needs to be done to alert motorists of the change, after the limit was reduced from 40mph to 30mph in 2011.

"It's a dual carriageway, everyone thinks is 40mph and if you go 30mph you get harassed by other drivers. There's no warning sign, no flashing 30mph speed limit. The authorities are just hiding behind a silly loop hole," he told the publication.

Mr D'Ettore attempted to appeal his charge at Kingston Crown Court but was unsuccessful in his bid.
He has collected 90 signatures from neighbours and shopkeepers who want better warning signs to be placed along the road.

However, signage might not be the answer to all speed-limit worries, as a sign in Michigan, US, was recently put in place with minute-specific times which change six times in the space of just two hours.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801309310-ADNFCR
