In 2019 I had the pleasure of leading on Mark Ruskell MSP’s members bill ‘Restricted Roads (20mph Speed Limit) (Scotland)’. Put simply, our bill would have reduced the default speed limit on restricted roads across Scotland from 30mph to 20mph. This would have covered the majority of roads on which we live, work and play on a daily basis. Although our bill was ultimately unsuccessful we started an important discussion in Scotland about road safety and in the months since there has been a significant increase in 20mph speed limits across the country.
