Campaign against 20 MPH speed limits

Local Campaigns

The 20 MPH speed limits are generally imposed by Local Authorities. They are frequently put forward as a solution to road safety problems by local councillors who are often very ignorant on road safety matters.

But such proposals can be stopped by educating councillors and council staff on the reality and making it clear that they may be wasting money on such schemes that could be better spent on other measures.

It is not difficult to develop a local campaign to oppose 20 limits and use local democracy to stop them happening. The ABD is happy to advise on such campaigns - use the Contact page if you need assistance.

An example of a successful campaign against 20 MPH limits was that in Worthing - see 20s-Pointless.
