Should 20mph should become the default speed limit for the town?
Supporters of such a scheme say it is not only safer, it encourages more people to cycle and walk, reduces pollution and can ease congestion.
Arguments against rest on the assertion that road traffic accidents are typically bad driver decisions and not speed and that the reduction means longer journey times. There is also a significant rollout cost.
For more context on question 3 around costs: costs can be difficult to estimate because each road and area has unique challenges. Typically, expenditure is on signage, driver education, and advertising campaigns. As an example, in Islington, a scheme cost £1.6 million.
