Lowering the speed limit will help make the streets safer for all road users. Those hit by a car at 20mph are far more likely to walk away with bruises and minor injuries than those hit at 30mph. The 20mph project is not a stand alone project, other measures such as local safety schemes and pedestrian and cycle training at schools will also help improve road safety.
