A move to halt the roll-out of Bristol's 20mph speed restrictions has been thwarted.
Conservative councillors claim the limits are being ignored by motorists and are making some roads more dangerous. At a meeting of full council they proposed a motion asking Bristol Mayor George Ferguson to give Neighbourhood Partnerships the powers to identify, prioritise and agree appropriate 20mph speed zones for their communities.
The motion was passed by councillors but the Mayor has the final say and he says he is committed to seeing the £2.3m scheme through.
