WSCC turns down speed limit for Hammerpond Road

The Horsham Society, at the request of local residents, has been investigating the need for a speed limit in Hammerpond Road.  According to WSCC the accident record of the last three years (7 slight injuries, 1 serious, 0 fatal) doesn't justify any such action but, following news of impending speed limit reductions, HS Chairman John Steele wrote to WSCC highways supremo Lt.Col. Tex Pemberton requesting that Hammerpond Road be included.

Unfortunately this last-ditch attempt has failed.  Apparently the road is unsuitable for a speed limit because the traffic travels too fast ... !
