Already over 15m people live in local authorities which are adopting or have adopted this policy. 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 300 local campaigns around the country and 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.

If you are viewing this page then you have found our new website with which we will be building a resource for campaigners and people implementing 20mph limits as well. And it here that you can set up an account and sign in to get updates, etc. You can sign in with your Facebook, Twitter or Email.

We won't have everything up available initially, so please also take a look at our legacy site at www.20splentyforus.org.uk if there is any further info or, contact us

    Casualty and Physical Inactivity Costs

    DfT have a calculation which assesses the costs of fatal, serious and non-serious casualties. We have linked the 2015 casualty stats for each local authority to this formula so that you can see the cost for your area.Public Health England also make an assessment of the costs of physical inactivity. Based on your authority's population we can show this for your area. We have also shown an approximate one-off cost of implementing 20mph limits across the authority based on the typical £3 per head of population. This is then shown as a percentage of the total annual casualty and physical inactivity costs. Whilst it is accepted that this is an approximation and may vary according the distribution of population it does show that put against the annual casualties and physical inactivity costs, the one-off cost of 20mph limits is minimal and typically less than 1%. These calculations are available in a spreadsheet which you can download here. Once downloaded then after "allowing editing" simply select the blue cell and then use the drop-down box to select your authority.
