Already over 20m people live in local authorities which are adopting or have adopted this policy. This includes Wales where the First Minister has set up a Task Group to implement a 20mph national default for residential roads.

Most importantly, through democratic debate those communities have decided that "20's Plenty Where People Live". And it is those same communities who have then changed their behaviour to drive slower in residential streets and where people walk and cycle.

20's Plenty for Us is a 'not for profit' organisation and now have over 400 local campaigns around the country and beyond. Many of our most iconic cities in the UK have already adopted a 20mph limit for most of their streets.

We quite simply campaign for 20mph to become the default speed limit on residential and urban streets. This can be done on most streets without the need for any physical calming and we accept that on some streets it may be appropriate to have a higher limit based on the road, vulnerable road users provision, etc. But any limit above 20mph should be a considered decision based on local circumstances.

    QUEEN’S UNIVERSITY BELFAST RESEARCHERS SHOW 20MPH ZONES EFFECTIVE IN REDUCING ROAD CASUALTIES

    Some of you may have seen the weekend papers which ran stories on this report from Queen's University Belfast. In fact the report in the Queen' s University website had exactly the headline shown above. It was a report that reviewed available previous research on 20mph zones and limits. It reviewed 9 20mph "Zone" reports and 2 20mph "limit" reports. Its conclusion was :- "This review suggests 20 mph ‘zones’ are effective in reducing collisions and casualties. However, it provides insufficient evidence to draw conclusions on the effect of 20 mph ‘zones’ on pollution, inequalities or liveability. For 20 mph ‘limits’ more rigorous evaluations are required in order to draw robust conclusions." Basically it was saying that the 2 reports used on 20mph were not thorough enough to draw "robust" conclusions. One of these reports was the Atkins report which we have also criticised for not being thorough enough to be meaningful. Much of our criticism of Atkins can be seen in a previous blog where we call-out the questions which still need to be answered.

    Costs of Separated Cycle Infrastructure Are Mostly Due to Allowing 30mph Driving – 20mph is Plenty

    20’s Plenty for Us campaign for community-wide 20mph limits and separated, high quality infrastructure where higher vehicle speeds are justified. Infrastructure costs are due to letting drivers travel at speeds where interactions between cyclist and motor vehicles are unsafe.  The cost of infrastructure is largely the cost of driving at speed and are not costs of cycling and walking.
