Living Streets 20mph campaign

The excellent Living Streets is campaigning for a 20mph speed limit right across London. Here Camden Community radio interviews Caroline Russell from Living Streets and Sophie Talbot from King’s Cross Community Projects about road safety (starting at 10.44 in), particularly in light of the Bad Gyrations campaign in King’s Cross.

  1. Thanks for this never heard of the radio station though so far

  2. Tom Platt says:

    Reducing motor traffic speeds on London’s streets is the single biggest change that will make them safe, vibrant and social places, not just corridors for traffic. Living Streets and partners want the future mayor of London to commit to introducing 20 mph speed limits on the mayoral controlled streets where we live, work and shop.

    Making 20 mph the default speed limit will:

    Increase someone’s chance of survival when being hit by a car to 97%
    Encourage walking and cycling
    Make our streets more sociable
    Reduce pollution and noise with less stop-start driving

    Help us create a city of 20 – join the campaign and write to the future mayor asking them to commit to introducing 20 mph on the streets where we live, work and shop. Find out more and write to the future mayor of London
