BMW driver says Lancashire 20mph speed limit hurts her car

DIANE Greenwood, says being made on pain of law to driver her BMW at 20mph will damage her car.

Lancashire County Council plans to impose a 20mph blanket speed limit on all residential roads. Diane Greenwood, 47, says reducing the 30mph limit will damage her car and – get this –  environment. She tells the Blackpool Gazette:

“My car is a two litre diesel BMW and is not designed to drive at 20mph in fourth gear which means I will have to drive in third gear. This will not only damage my car but will also affect the environment and cost me fortunes in extra fuel costs. If this happens I will have no alternative but to lodge a claim against Lancashire County Council for the damage to my vehicle and any extra costs incurred due to the new restrictions.”
