Huhne backs lower speed limits

Chris Huhne, Eastleigh’s MP, has been backing local road safety issues now that his resignation from the cabinet as energy minister has left him with more time to spend on constituency matters.

The MP has appeared in a recent edition of the Lib Dem magazine ‘Focus’ calling for a reduction in the speed limit from 40 to 30 mph along Alan Drayton way.

Mr Huhne – who received a three month driving ban in 2003 and was said by his former wife to ‘drive like a bit of a maniac’ – has also called for speed limits to be reduced in Hamble following a fatal accident there last week.

The Echo has reported that Mr Huhne has called on the County Council to reduce the speed limit on Hamble Lane and that he was concerned at the amount of traffic on the road – a situation which is expected to worsen when gravel extraction commences at Hamble Airfield.
