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 400 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's 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.

    Letter in Local Transport Today

    Unanswered questions about the DfT’s 20mph study Rod King Founder And Campaign Director 20’S Plenty For Us Lymm WA13 10 May 2019 The debate about 20mph limits seems to be rumbling on in your pages but consultant Atkins and the DfT still haven’t answered the questions posed in my LTT letter of 1 March regarding the use of comparator areas for casualty reductions. It may be useful to recap on the key issues that remain unclear: the report only looked at eight small case studies of residential roads in its casualty analysis, plus part of Brighton. The size of these areas varied considerably and whilst Winchester (Stanmore) had only four collisions per annum and Walsall (Rushall) just one collision on average for the five years beforehand, the Brighton (phase two) case study had 92 collisions per annum. In fact, on average Brighton comprised 46 per cent of the total dataset of collisions. Hence, when the results were indexed and aggregated, the outcome was overly influenced by the Brighton figures. This should have sounded a warning bell to the authors that this was not a robust set of data to be used in such an evaluation.

    The Climate Emergency – 20mph Reduces Emissions, helps traffic reduction and reduces oil dependency.

    By Anna Semlyen, Cutting Your Car Use author, National Campaign Manager of 20’s Plenty for Us Climate activists are ramping up direct action because scientists say we are running out of time for politicians to act before the 1.5-2 degree warming that is irreversible.  Top personal ways to decarbonise and prevent climate chaos are to stop eating meat and to stop flying.  20mph limits enter the climate debate as crucial to reduce fossil fuel use for transport in towns and villages. Politicians must act to make it more possible for citizens to ‘do their bit’ to get about the places they live in greener ways.

    20's Plenty Submission to Parliamentary Transport Committee

    The UK's Parliamentary Transport Committee has launched an inquiry into road safety. The scope of the inquiry is :- "The Transport Committee is concerned that progress increasing levels of road safety has levelled off and is launching an inquiry to scrutinise the Government’s approach to road safety, last set out in its 2015 road safety statement. The inquiry will investigate which changes would be most effective at reducing the number and severity of road traffic accidents." We submitted evidence to the committee on how a default 20mph urban and village speed limit would have a considerable positive effect on road safety. Our submission follows.

    20mph Limits Help the Invisibly Disabled Gain Social Equality
