Plans muted to make more 20mph zones

BRAKE, the road safety charity, is appealing to drivers to slow down to 20mph or lower in communities.

They are also campaigning for widespread 20mph limits in built- up areas, so children, families and adults can walk and cycle without the threat of speeding motorists.

Ellie Pearson, campaign spokesperson for Brake, said: “Everyone should be able to walk and cycle in their community without fear or threat. It’s a basic right, and GO 20 is about defending that.

“The Olympics helped us realise the importance of active lifestyles. Critical to this is making our streets and communities safe places.

“Anyone who drives can help bring this about: pledge to GO 20 in communities, even where the limit’s still 30. You’ll be helping to protect people around you.”
