Taking action on poor road safety
Best practice options: 20mph speed limits: Recommendations
World Health OrganisationThe World Health Organisation has made the declaration on 20mph (30kph) speed limits :
A safe speed on roads with possible conflicts between cars and pedestrians, cyclists or other vulnerable road users is 30 km/h (see Table 2). To achieve these safe speeds, local authorities should have the legislative power to reduce limits as needed to better protect all who use the roads. In addition, drivers should be informed of limits through sign-posting the legal speed limit on roads and rigorously enforcing the law.
The "Table 2" is as follows.
