Consultation on default 20mph speed limit in urban areas

Deadline 07 August 2017

Mark Ruskell MSP is proposing a Bill to be put forward in the Scottish Parliament to make 20mph the default speed limit in urban areas.

The benefits to 20mph zones are clear. There are fewer deaths and injuries; cycling and walking become easier due to reduced traffic speeds; and air pollution tends to be lower.

There is now a consultation on this proposed Bill, which aims to gather the opinion of the public on a default 20mph speed limit. You can share your views by filling out this survey.

To read more about why a default 20mph speed limit would benefit all of us, and for more information on the Bill, see here.

The deadline for responses is 7th August.
