Puzzle over 20mph signs in alleyways

First published in News

The introduction of 20mph zones in Otley is being hailed as a major road safety boost – but has already left some residents scratching their heads.
Signs announcing the lower new limit, being imposed on more than 100 roads south of the river, started going up last week.
It marks the end of 'phase one' of a long-running campaign, spearheaded by Councillor Colin Campbell (Lib Dem, Otley & Yeadon), to improve road safety.
The placement of some of the signs, however, on cluttered, narrow back alleys and other locations where high speeds seem unlikely, has been branded as ridiculous and a waste of money.
Chris Kelly, of Granville Terrace, was one of a number of residents who flagged up the issue.
