Government report backs 20mph speed limits

A report from the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) has recommended 20mph speed limits in residential areas. These include roads where children and young people are likely to be, for instance near playgrounds or schools, or where pedestrian and cyclist journeys are frequent. Find out more in this LCC article, or from campaign group Twenty's Plenty. Group founder Rod King says: 'speed really becomes greed when it stops people from walking or cycling on the streets they call home'.


20mph is definitely the right

20mph is definitely the right thing for many local streets.

On the other hand, 20mph can be really annoying for motorists as well as cyclists such as in Richmond Park. Cycling in Richmond Park has become riskier because now you cycle among cars. Even for cyclists 20mph can be slow.
