20's Plenty for Us

Our campaign is to change the default urban and village speed limit from 30mph to 20mph. Already over 20m people live in places where the local Traffic Authority have decided the 30mph limit is no longer "fit for purpose" and has set a 20mph limit for most roads. This includes all the Inner London Boroughs, the majority of the largest 40 urban authorities and may others. Recently the Welsh Government started planning to make 20mph the national urban default.

This is being done to reduce road casualties, encourage active travel, reduce pollution and enable practical mobility for those who wish to walk and cycle. It does not compromise other cycling and walking interventions, but provides a platform making them more effective.

We are campaigning for the UK government to do the same for England and encourage the other devolved authorities in Scotland and Northern Ireland to change their own national limit to 20mph.

Why not reference any particular benefits which you want from a 20mph limit?

Why not ask why your authority to look forward to the benefits of increased walking and cycling?

A 20mph limit sets a new reference point for how we use motors in the streets now being used by so many people walking and cycling.
