There are three days left for people living in Bristol to have their say on the effectiveness of the city's 20mph speed zones.

A study by the University of the West of England this year revealed there has been a reduction in the number of fatal injuries from road collisions since the speed limits were introduced in 2014.

So far more than 2,100 people have shared their views about how the speed limit is working as part of a Bristol City Council consultation.

The review is only looking at changes to speed limits rather than physical changes like speed bumps or traffic calming.

During the review councillors have been promoting Community Speedwatch, a police initiative where residents volunteer to monitor speeds using detection equipment and record details of any vehicles travelling over the limit to share with the police.
