What's in it for me?

It would be better for everyone! Just think…

  • Better for children – safe streets where they can walk, cycle and play (and better for parents who don’t have to run a taxi service for their children!)
  • Better for older people and the disabled – quieter roads with slower traffic means it’s easier to keep your independence and mobility
  • Better for pedestrians – safer, quieter, cleaner streets are nicer places to walk
  • Better for cyclists – a network of safe residential roads means many more journeys become possible without the need for cycle lanes
  • Better for motorists – more people cycling and walking means less congestion and less pressure on parking. Slower speeds means less aggressive driving behaviour and fewer crashes. And in case you were wondering, because it doesn’t apply to arterial roads, it would only add about 20 seconds to most journeys.
