20's Plenty for York has been successful in that most residential York streets have been agreed for a 20mph default speed limit where people live, without traffic calming.Why?- 95% reduction in risk to walkers and cyclists. Plus more walking and cycling, less pollution, less noise, less fear and a better quality of life.
There is still more to do! Users of the city centre bridges in York would benefit a 20mph limit too and plans for central York still aren't yet agreed.
