20mph speed limits aim to improve the safety and quality of life for local people by promoting more considerate driving. We hope this will encourage more of us to make greater use of our streets for walking, cycling, playing or just socialising. With less traffic and more people around, the places we live in should, in time, become safer, friendlier, quieter and cleaner places to be.
Following simplified guidance from the Department for Transport, we are able to introduce 20mph zones (where traffic is already travelling near this speed).
