Introduce national speed limit says coroner

Have your say

CORONER of inquests John Needham has said the Isle of Man should introduce a national speed limit.

His call came during the inquest into the death of motorcyclist Davy Jones, who died last May when he hit the back of a bin lorry on the Cronk-y-Voddy straight.

Mr Needham said that the island’s stance of having derestricted roads could be contrary to article two of the European Convention on Human Rights.
