    United Kingdom's new thirty mile per hour speed limit enforced in built-up urban areas

  • Description

    SLATE INFORMATION: The Great Slow-Down! Motto: Send husband to business (?) early.

    ENGLAND:
    EXT
    Actor Gordon Harker plays Leslie Hore-Belisha (1st Baron, British politician) in this quirky commentary on the newly imposed 30 m.p.h speed limit in the UK. Funny soundbite - the use of uniformed female officials is suggested to "provide something worth slowing down for". Cars, vehicles, motoring, driving, speedometer, girls, women, officers, politics, road safety, transportation, 1930s, 1930's, nineteen thirties.
