Founder and Campaign Director of 20's Plenty for Us, Rod King, was asked to speak at the annual Academic Lecture held by the Road Safety Authority of Ireland on the subject of 30km/h speed limits at the start of their annual Road Safety Week on 2nd October 2017.
Rod King MBE, Founder of 20’s Plenty for Us has been recognized by the Irish Road Victims Association (IRVA). He won the IRVA’s Global ‘Light of Hope’ Award 2017 in Mullingar, Ireland on 19th November, the World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims. Rod King has voluntarily campaigned for 20mph/30km/h road speed limits since 2005.
Welcome to the new area of the website that we have for those in countries using km/h for speed limits. Of course lower speeds in communities is not just becoming a UK standard. Other countries and places around the world have already or are adopting a 30km/h (18.5mph) limit as default for their urban and village streets.
We now have local campaigns in USA in mph but also Ireland and Canada in kmh. Whilst there are legal jurisdictions that are different in each country the benefits of lower limits and vehcile speeds for residential and urban streets are the same across the world. As our campaign grows we expect to see many more local campaigns syaing the 20 is Plenty in mph or how they Love 30 in kmh.
