Jersey lanes speed 'should stay 15mph'

Speed limits on country lanes in Jersey should stay at 15mph, the Jersey Hospitality Association says.

The States is to debate proposals to raise the limit to 20mph. Priority is given to walkers, cyclists and horse riders on the 50-mile network of lanes.

The association said any increase would have a negative impact on the island's tourism industry, which has to protect its assets.

The States is due to discuss the issue on 18 January.
