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.

    Bradford City Centre 20mph limits go live

    Today we were asked by Bradford Council to a provide a supporting statement to their press release. This is what we suggested :- “20mph limits are the global standard where pedestrians and cyclists mix with motor vehicles. This is supported by the World Health Organisation, OECD, and many global and national NGOs. In many countries, 30km/h (18.5mph) limits are standard across cities, towns and villages. Already 21m people in the UK live in authorities that have already set or are setting 20mph for most residential and city centre streets. 20mph becomes the norm rather than the exception. This delivers across a wide range of city aspirations including reducing road danger, enabling active mobility, child mobility , elderly mobility and reducing emissions and car-dependency. It is good to see Bradford Council adopting 20mph limits, and we would urge it to go further and deliver a 20mph street environment as the norm for all its residential roads across the whole district.”

    Beware Irrelevant DfT Data on Speeding in 20mph Limits.

    Blog by Anna Semlyen 20’s Plenty for Us National Campaign Manager June 2019 At the end of June, the Department for Transport (DfT) report some irrelevant statistics on speeding[1]. Note firstly that the 10 sites of 20mph roads are unrepresentative free-flow locations with no traffic calming or other speed restricting features which tend to be through-roads.  Yet most 20mph limits are side roads.   [1] https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/vehicle-speed-compliance-statistics-for-great-britain-2018
