READERS' opinions were divided about the proposed introduction of 20mph speed limits in Croydon last week.
After the Advertiser's report on the council's plans to introduce 20mph speed limits in the borough we asked you if you wanted the limits in an online poll.
The council plans to split the borough into five and introduce a 20mph limit in one area a year, at a cost of £300,000 a year, in a bid to increase safety on the roads.
While 45 per cent of you said you strongly agreed that you would like to see the limits in the street you live in 39 per cent strongly disagreed.
And opinions were just as close in response to whether you would like to see the limits in other streets in the borough, with 39 per cent strongly agreeing and 36 per cent strongly disagreeing.
There were 132 responses to the poll. One comment said: "The current speed limits need to be enforced. A 20mph limit will not stop those who always drive above 30mph."
But another said: "Sooner the better. If it only saves one life it's worth it."
