20's Plenty for Richmond

Why 20mph?

20mph speed limits can lead to:

  • Significant reductions in the number and severity of road casualties: hit by a car at 20mph 1 in 40 pedestrians would be killed; at 30mph 1 in 5 would be killed!
  • Lower levels of emissions and pollution
  • Reduced traffic volumes and easier traffic flow
  • Safer school runs (Britain has one of the lowest levels of children walking or cycling to school in Europe)
  • A quieter, calmer, safer environment for everyone, especially vulnerable road users, such as children, disabled and elderley people
  • Safer surroundings for pets
