Campaign against 20 MPH speed limits


Stopping 20 MPH Speed Limits

About this Campaign

This page summarises the objectives of this campaign. The objective is simple - to stop the waste of money being spent on 20 MPH speed limits which has no benefit in road safety terms and no other benefits. The money wasted by putting up 20 MPH speed limit signs would be much better spent on other road safety measures such as road engineering and driver education. We also aim to counter the misinformation on 20 MPH speed limits that is being spread by those campaign groups that support them.

By clicking on the “Next” link below you can step through other pages that give more explanation of the reasons for the campaign, and the evidence that supports our claims.

If you agree with us, and wish to stop the spread of 20 MPH or lower speed limits which have nothing to do with improving road safety, please register your support by going here:

This campaign was founded by the Alliance of British Drivers (ABD) in July 2019 - see below.

This campaign is supported by the Alliance of British Drivers (ABD) - see foot of page for information on the ABD.

About the ABD

The ABD was founded in 1992 under the name of the Association of British Drivers and later merged with the Drivers Alliance to form the Alliance of British Drivers. The ABD is a voluntary organisation promoting the interests and concerns of Britain's drivers. With cars, vans and taxis accounting for 80% of the mileage of all trips in the UK, and over 65% of goods being carried by road, the road network and the people who use it are of vital importance to the nation's economy.

The Alliance of British Drivers is a not-for-profit organisation that is owned and controlled by its members (incorporated as a company limited by guarantee). We are independent and simply represent the views of our members who are representative of the mass of road users in the UK. Anyone can join the ABD so as to help to support our aims. We promote your views to national and local Government bodies, and provide information to our members and the general public. We try to counter the misinformation spread by many people on the use of private vehicles, and we promote freedom of choice about how you travel.

This campaign is just one of many issues we promote which include:
