Email your MP to support UN Global Road Safety Week

The UN are calling for 20mph or 30km/h speed limits to become the norm in places where people on foot or on bicycle mix with motor vehicles. It is the key focus of the 6th UN Global Road Safety Week running from 17th-23rd May. This is backed by science and the call from communities to set speed limits that are compatible with liveable communities. Create an email

Email your local candidate

Ask your local election candidate to pledge their support for 20mph. 20s Plenty for Us has created a template letter for campaigners to ask their local council candidates to pledge support for 20mph. Originally designed for county council elections, the template can be adapted for use in (e.g.) Mayoral, Police and Crime Commissioner, borough / district  or parish council elections.

Email the Decision Makers in your local authority

It is important that our communities get that correct 20mph limit on our residential streets, our  shopping streets, around our schools, and anywhere that we expect pedestrians and cyclists to mix with motor vehicles. Your authority can already set 20mph limits on most of your urban and village roads. Remind the decision makers in your local authority that our communities need to join the many in the UK where the consensus is that 20's Plenty where people are, and have authority-wide default 20mph limits.   Create an email

Email your MP for an emergency 20mph default during Covid-19

The Covid-19 Crisis is putting a huge load on our health and transport systems. As lock-down eases we can expect to see a massive increase in driving, cycling and walking. At the same time social distancing demands that people keep further apart when walking and cycling. Whilst local authorities can make some highway changes the government can take emergency action to reduce the national urban speed limit to 20mph to give everyone more time to avoid collisions and casualties. It has changed national speed limits in times of crisis before. Add your voice to asking MPs to do so again. Create an email
