20's Plenty for Us is a 'not for profit’ organisation with over 700 local groups campaigning to make cities, towns and villages around the world better places to be.

We campaign for a speed limit of 20mph to be normal on residential streets and in town and village centres, unless full consideration of the needs of vulnerable road users allows a higher limit on particular streets. 28 million people in the UK live where this is policy.

Being hit by a car at 30mph is equivalent to an 8.8 metre trench fall. 20mph is 3.6m and is best practice where motors mix with walkers and cyclists.

Quality of life benefits include 20% fewer casualties, half the noise, a quarter less pollution, more cycling, decreases in car use and less fear, with no significant change in trip time

Please put a motion for 20mph to your Town or Parish Council. Briefing at https://www.20splenty.org/parish_council_motion
