The ninth annual 20’s Plenty for Us conference saw delegates discuss the potential to make streets in Wales healthier by introducing a default 20mph speed limit in urban areas.

Good eyesight ‘vital’ for road safety

Road Safety Wales is encouraging motorists to have an eye test every two years, or more often if suggested by an optician, as part of a national campaign.

Welsh Government ‘should impose a default 20mph limit’

The Welsh Government ‘should impose a default 20mph limit in urban areas’, giving local authorities discretion to exempt routes where justified, a new report suggests.

A conference taking place in Wales next month will focus on how 20mph limits support health and wellbeing.
