Hi Phil, there is already a 20mph limit in use in Burry Port most of 
the side streets where people will do 20mph anyway, but the council 
have spent 558,000 in pembrey alone installing speed bumps and islands 
and all sorts, my suspension is shot to pieces along with loads more 
thats been complaining about them its not that we driving too fast its 
the constant up and down of them, i been living here 15 years and can 
only think of one serious accident and that was down to the driver 
being a complete idiot anyway, so the bumbs and islands and all the 
other stuff is not going to achieve a great deal only spend our tax
