Slower speeds on roads will help to make walking or cycling more attractive options. 20mph is part of a broader package of measures aimed to give children more confidence to walk, scoot and cycle. Other measures include bus improvements, travel plans for schools and businesses, local safety schemes all of which will help increase active travel which is great for your health.
St George’s Ramblers group are keen to support the 20mph speed limit as it makes it easier to cross roads and promotes active travel.
