OVERTON could have a 20mph limit introduced in the village centre.

Overton Parish Council voted in favour of adding the village to a list of places that would like the lower speed limit to be adopted.

Hampshire County Council has offered towns and villages in the county the chance to have the 20mph limit introduced after it is trialled in several areas, including Whitchurch.

Good, they should think about lowering the limit on Kingsclere road in Overton too where the retirement flats are as people drive way too fast and it's only a matter of time before a nasty accident occurs

Can't drive faster than 20 through Whitchurch thanks to the natural limiter of selfish parking

Doesn't stop people trying anymore than signs will. There are those who drive sensibly and take account of the conditions and signage and those who only think of themselves.
