The 20's Plenty for Us Campaign (Video)


Roads in Residential Areas Should be Safe for All
In residential areas, lowering the speed limit for cars not only reduces the number of accidents, injuries and deaths, but it also revitalises the neighborhood by encouraging more people to walk and bike. When people feel safe on the streets, they use greener forms of transportation more often. That's the main argument of the 20's Plenty for Us campaign in the UK, and looking at the results in areas where the 20 MPH speed limit was implemented, it looks like they are right.
