My local council is proposing average speed cameras with a 20 mph limit on a a long stretch of local urban 30 mph road.

I think this could be distracting and dangerous, but need some sound arguments against it happening.

Any ideas?

That they probably wouldn't raise much money cause it's pretty darn hard to even reach 20 in London!

How about the fact that the limit is 30 would mean that they would catch everyone travelling at 23mph and above?

Is it legal to have a SPECS system at that speed? Isn't the minimum accurate speed on a speedo 25mph and above?

The 20 mph limit on Tower Bridge is enforced by SPECS.
