Leeds City Council is set to put the brakes on speeding drivers in north west Leeds.
Two 20mph zones will be installed in Horsforth and Rawdon in a bid to reduce the number of casualties on local roads.
A zone will be implemented outside Horsforth School and another will be enforced along Rawdon Town Street.
They are two of around 60 20mph areas across the city and they are expected to be in force this Spring.
The new restrictions are part of the local authority’s bid to reduce the number of casualties on the city’s roads.
In 2011, 26 people were killed in accidents on the city’s roads, 271 were seriously injured and nearly 2,400 people were slightly injured.
The new 20mph roads coincides with a review of parking restrictions in Horsforth around Featherbank Primary, Newlaithes Primary and along Clarence Road.
Councillor Richard Lewis, executive member for development and economy, said: “We are committed to reducing the number of injuries and accidents which occur on Leeds’ roads.
“The improvement to the system to determine where 20mph zones can go is a positive step towards fulfilling our commitment.
“We want residents to feel safe on their streets and I am delighted to hear we are looking to install more reduced speed limits wherever we can.”
The YEP reported that speed measures will be implemented in an inner-city estate after a great-grandmother was killed in a hit-and-run.
Pensioner Sheila Pickles died after she was struck by a car on Oatland Lane in Little London, Leeds, in 2011.
The speed limit of Lovell Park Road – and surrounding streets – is set to be slashed to 20mph later this year.
Highways officers will develop a scoring system to decide where 20mph restrictions will be introduced by looking at schools, vulnerable users in the area and the population.
