Recently at the Traffic Management Advisory Panel following on from a Green initiative 20 mph speed limits are back on the agenda. Unfortunately though the Council is starting from the position of assuming people don't want them and asking people to opt in rather than the other way round.
I think we need a campaign to get the Council to agree to introduce 20 mph speed limits in all residential areas of Reading. If people in an area want to campaign against the introduction of 20 mph speed limits then this should be considered by the council. It is by taking this approach that Portsmouth Council introduced 20 mph speed limits in all residential areas across the city.
Greens have already successfully got 20 mph speed limits introduced in a number of places across the country: York, Norwich and Lewisham to name a few.
