Stephen Edwards, Director of Policy & Communications at Living Streets said:
“It’s vital that people realise the facts around 20mph. If a pedestrian is struck by a vehicle at 20mph they have a 97% chance of survival. This reduces with every mile driven faster. As a supporter of Vision Zero, Living Streets champions a change in legislation to set 20mph as the default speed limit in built-up areas. Lower speeds are an essential part of liveable neighbourhoods. The consultation and implementation plan TfL has devised are a great step forward for London.”
For full details of the TfL proposals and to share your views, please visit: https://consultations.tfl.gov.uk/streets/20. The consultation is open until Wednesday 10 July 2019.
