Milestone for 20's Plenty
The '20's Plenty for Us campaign says there are now 150 places across the country where local residents are calling for community-wide 20mph speed limits.
A group in Brent (north London) became the 150th place to join the campaign, which calls for 20mph speed limits on residential roads, without the need for speed humps. Certain roads can be exempt and the limits are enforced by what 20's Plenty calls ‘light touch policing’.
20's Plenty says that more than eight million people now live in local authority areas that are committed to 20mph limits.
The campaign points to surveys 'consistently showing that more than 75% of people believe that 20mph is the right speed limit for residential roads'.
Rod King, founder and campaign director, said: “Celebrating our 150th local campaign is a proud landmark. It is a testament to the acceptance of the concept of lower speed limits for residential streets.
“The efforts of thousands of local campaigners are making the case for lower speeds in their communities and are delivering a real change in the way that our roads are shared for the benefit of all road users.”
