Phase 1 of Brighton and Hove’s new 20mph speed limit is due to be legally enforced from 8 April 2013.
Signage for the new limit has started appearing in the area’s included in Phase 1. This has caused some confusion and frustration to motorist. The speed limit is 30mph until the new 20mph limit will be legally enforceable. In the mean time its a good practice to be patient with other road users as they may be unsure of the new signage.
