Twenty is plenty
By Ed Mitchell 18th November 2010
We heard that Transition Montpelier supported their local 20’s plenty campaign and are now happy to have 20 MPH limits in their neighbourhood. The intent behind this campaign is to slow cars down, making the streets more human-friendly and less polluting.
Here is a piece we received outlining the campaign and who to contact if you are interested:
20’s Plenty for Us is the national campaign for 20 mph speed limits where people live without traffic calming.
This is the basis of transition to low carbon transport as it is safer (22% fewer casualties), increases walking, cycling and bus use, uses less fuel (12% less), improves air quality, reduces noise pollution and is great for neighbourliness.
4.7 million people in Britain live in authorities who have adopted, or have committed to, 20 mph residential streets. Anna Semlyen is paid Campaign Manager. She helps anyone interested in campaigning for 20 mph limits with free resources like posters, a email address, website, leaflets and stickers, plus advice.
