In the inaugural Road Safety News podcast, Nick Rawlings and Jeremy Leach enjoy a convivial discussion about ‘all things 20mph’.
‘RSGB Talks’ – the title for the new podcast – will become a regular feature on Road Safety News during 2019.
In each edition, Nick Rawlings, editor of Road Safety News, will be joined by a guest to discuss a different road safety topic.
In the 18-minute launch podcast, Nick is joined by Jeremy Leach, London campaign coordinator for 20’s Plenty for Us.
The pair briefly review the recently published DfT/Atkins report, with Nick seeking Jeremy’s views on the report’s conclusion that there is no evidence of a reduction in collisions and casualties following the introduction of 20mph limits (3mins 3secs).
Nick and Jeremy go on to discuss what’s next for 20’s Plenty for Us, in particular the campaign’s mission to reduce the default speed limit in urban areas from 30mph to 20mph – a move which Nick suggests could alienate drivers who currently support 20mph limits (8mins).
Jeremy also explains how he first become involved with 20’s Plenty and provides insight about what it’s like to work with Rod King MBE, founder of the campaign group (15mins 9secs).
Nick Rawlings said: “Podcasting is new for me, but I couldn’t have had a better first guest than Jeremy.
“I really enjoyed our discussions and hope readers will find RSGB Talks an interesting addition to the Road Safety News service.”
