New urban speed limit would offer huge opportunities for safer, healthier streets

Published 02 August 2017 by Jamie Wylie

Transform Scotland has today responded the Scottish Parliament’s consultation on the Proposed Restricted Roads (20mph Limit) (Scotland) Bill.

The Bill, proposed by Mark Ruskell MSP, sets out proposals to implement a new default 20 mph speed limit in urban areas in Scotland.

The benefits of 20 mph limits are clear: reduced casualties and injuries for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists; potential to increase the number of people walking or cycling for work and leisure; and a more enjoyable and pleasant urban environment.

To read our consultation response in full, please see here.

We would strongly encourage people to support the introduction of a default 20 mph limit. The consultation runs until 15 September. For more information, see here.
