20's Plenty for Ludlow

This petition had 124 supporters

Community wide 20 mph speed limits are now recognised as the single most effective action that local councils can take to promote health and safety in their communities.

20 mph wide area limits are widely accepted in countries across the world, already apply to 15 million people in the UK and are supported by the Word Health Organisation and Directors fo Public Health (nationally).   80% of households surveyed in 'problem' streets in Ludlow have already voted for a community-wide 20 mph speed limit - your.

20 mph wide area limits target all residential and town centre streets where people live, play or work.

20 mph wide area limits are implemented without the expense and aggravation of traffic calming measures such as speed bumps.

20 mph wide area limits drastically reduce road signage and the confusion of 40, 30, 20 – 20, 30, 40 mph variable limits.   20 mph signs at entry points to the town announce a common mandatory speed limit throughout.

20 mph wide area limits improve traffic flow and reduce fuel consumption, congestion and pollution, are supported by 75 – 80% of people as the right speed limit for most streets and      promote a culture change in how public spaces are used.
