Benefits of a 20mph speed limit 

Research shows that:

  • there are fewer serious road collisions when people drive at lower speeds
  • driving more slowly at a steady pace reduces pollution (unless someone is in an unnecessarily low gear)
  • cyclists and pedestrians feel safer on roads
  • it encourages healthier ways of getting around – for example, walking and cycling
