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.

    Do you TomTom?

    ...or why unrepresentative data is not reliable. If you don't have a TomTom device in your vehicle then you may be surprised that if you live in one of the places recently researched by Atkins for the their Evaluation of 20mph limits then it doesn't matter how much you keep within the speed limit your considerate driving was completely ignored. And you wouldn't be alone. The report estimated that the actual number of drivers who were also ignored were in the 97% of vehicles who's speed they never measured. Atkins and DfT decided that in order to gather information on vehicle speeds in 20mph streets in 12 case study 20mph areas and compare them with 3 other 30mph areas then they would use data captured from high end TomTom SatNavs or vehicles with in-built TomTom in-car devices. This is termed Floating Car Data (FCD). You may therefore wonder just how accurate and representative their statistics and research were if it only included 3% of vehicles. We did as well, so we did some of our own research.

    Faster is not Safer

    You may have seen the reports in the Sun and Daily Mail today. Well “faster is safer” is a great message that some people would love to hear, but is groundless. We have already debunked each of the examples quoted in Bath & North East Somerset, Manchester and Hampshire. Other references shown bear no relation to most 20mph limits.

    DfT 20mph Evaluation – Liveable streets road block or foundation for a national 20mph limit

    Back in 2014 the question for the government and DfT was whether 20mph limits were popular, are they the correct limit and should there be more of them. But the more we look at how the whole 20mph movement has developed we see that these questions have already been answered for us.

    DfT 20mph Evaluation Conclusions

    We consider this report to be a very useful addition to the wealth of information that we have already collated in our briefing sheets. We think it beneficial to both provide a link to the Headline Report and the Detail Report. We are particularly pleased with the  summary of "Lessons and considerations for national and local decision-makers", which very much echoes our own views on the way to implement wide-area schemes which maximise success and provide the foundation for a wide range of societal benefits and other initiatives. Hence we have included the final sections of the Headline Report below. You may also download the MindMap which we presented to Atkins toward the end of the evaluation for comparison. You can also access our Press Release showing our initial response.
