I am delighted that a 20mph sign features in the graphics for this year’s Road Safety Week. 20mph limits are now accepted as the norm by global road safety and health organisations as the maximum safe speed for streets where motors mix with pedestrians and cyclists unless segregated and crossing provision exists to ensure their protection. And even before 2020 this included WHO, OECD, FIA Foundation, Global Alliance of Road Safety NGOs, Global Network of Road Safety Legislators, and many more.
