20 mph Speed Limits

Increasingly it is accepted that 20mph speed limits save lives, and they are being implemented on residential roads across many London boroughs.

Where cyclists must share space with motor traffic, reducing the speed differential is important: both for reducing the risk of death and injury, and for creating more pleasant cycling and walking environments. Yet many parts of London are still 30mph; although it's great to see boroughs adopting 20mph limits often it's only on 'residential roads', meaning that local high streets can still carry inappropriately fast traffic.

We asked local Councillors to help implement and enforce 20mph speed limits on our streets.
