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

    20's Plenty responds to DfT Cycling and Walking Consultation

    Our view is that the Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy will fail in its aim to create a walking and cycling nation. Our response follows :-

    Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy needs Vision

    Last night I attended the DfT Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy briefing in Manchester. This is part of their consultation process on their "ambition" for walking and cycling in England. See https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/draft-cycling-and-walking-investment-strategy I came away underwhelmed at what they called a "strategy to create a walking and cycling nation". Whilst there was a collection of funds and packages that will support the encouragement of walking and cycling in some places and in some ways, there was no symbolic national gesture that the government really meant to create a "walking and cycling nation". Those who are supporters of walking and cycling should respond to this consultation and make it very clear that the policy strategy lacks ambition and unless radically changed will make little difference to the promotion and development of walking and cycling in England.

    Scottish 20mph Default Moves Closer

    The first Scottish 20mph Conference moved the debate forward on a National 20mph limit.  20mph was clearly popular amongst delegates from many Traffic Authorities with 95% “favouring a national default limit of 20mph”. Conference-goers agreed 20’s Plenty. The Scottish Government can lead on a 20mph default for built up areas as this is the best value for money in raising everyday road safety and liveability.

    20mph As Scotland’s National Limit

    People want 20mph streets.  Fortunately 20mph limits are affordable and do-able. What’s the best method? The Scottish Government can lead with a 20mph default for built up areas.  This is a cost effective win-win all round – eg for the legal process, consultation, signage, engagement, higher compliance and enforcement.

    How authority-wide 20’s Plenty beats isolated physically calmed zones in value for money and cost effectiveness

    For some it could seem counterintuitive to applaud a network-wide 1-2mph speed reduction. However, wide 20mph limits are highly cost effective. What seems, at first, like a small reduction in speeds benefits society at large. Shared gains add up. Wide 20mph limits are efficient, affordable, cost-effective, fair, understandable, rapid to install and healthy.

    Funding 20mph Limits

    20 mph limits are fantastic value for money with huge first year rates of return.  Spending on all roads benefits every resident. Many different funds can pay for 20mph - which costs about £2.50-£3 per head. A national default 20mph limit would be cheaper due to fewer repeater signs, traffic orders and marketing. Cardiff propose using motoring fines.
