Govt. Advisers Back 20MPH Limit

The Parliamentary Advisory Council for Transport Safety has come out in favour of our campaign for a 20mph speed limit in urban areas. And new speed cameras, which measure a driver's speed over a certain distance, should be a priority for the Home Office, say its authors.

The executive director of the parliamentary committee told the BBC this morning, "People want to walk and cycle, or want their children to walk and cycle, but are often afraid of traffic going too fast down their road".

More details about the report, called Beyond 2010 - a holistic approach to road safety in Great Britain, can be found here.
