TRANSPORT 2000 and Roadpeace, a road safety group, have criticised the Government for caving in to pressure after dropping plans to reduce the urban speed limit.

Dr Ian Roberts, director of the child health monitoring unit at University College, London, said Britain was at the bottom of the European league for road safety with 5,000 children killed or seriously injured each year.
