Remember the speed limits are the maximum speed permitted, but at times drivers should reduce their speed below that due to road conditions prevailing. 


We have been seeking to have a maximum speed limit of 20 MPH outside every School in Northumberland – Thank you for your support, the outcome is awaited.



Drink / Drug Driving – Just don’t do it.
