Scots could face gridlocked towns and cities in 2025 as the SNP confirmed they were pushing ahead with plans to enforce 20 miles per hour (mph) speed limits for most urban roads in Scotland. It would mean that motorists who are driving through areas with homes, schools and shops will need to slow down.

The policy has already been rolled out in Wales but has been subjected to criticism as it has caused traffic jams in some places. The devolved Labour government brought it in, but it has even been slated by a party MP, with Chris Bryant calling it “bonkers” in some areas, and said it was causing difficulty for buses and care workers.
