20's Plenty lobbies EU for 20mph limits
The 20’s Plenty for Us campaign is using a European Citizen’s Initiative (ECI) to lobby the EU Commission to make 20mph/30kmh speed limits the norm for residential roads.
20’s Plenty says it is collaborating with other organisations throughout Europe to use the new ECI ‘30kmh – making streets liveable!’ to “call attention to the community popularity of 20mph/30kmh speed limits for urban and residential roads”.
The ECI calls for 20mph/30kmh limits to become the accepted norm for urban and residential streets, with local authorities able to make exceptions where it is deemed that pedestrian and cyclist safety has been alternatively provided for.
Rod King, founder of 20’s Plenty for Us, said: “Many local authorities have made great progress in implementing 20mph speed limits in the UK for residential and urban streets.
“This important EU initiative goes further and recognises the universal aspiration of citizens and communities to enjoy the public space between their houses and share it equitably for motorists, pedestrians and cyclists.
“30kmh – making streets liveable is an excellent use of this new EU process and we look forward to working with supporters throughout UK and EU to make all our places better places to be.”
