SUCCESS - Worthing CLC said YES

Worthing County Local Committee have agreed there should be a full public consultation regarding introducing 20mph speed limits on all of Worthing’s residential roads. This is great news – it is a big step forward. If the response to the consultation is successful then it should mean that 20’s Plenty will go ahead.

There are funds available, many people support it and it would make Worthing a safer and more pleasant place to live.

If you haven’t already, please do sign the petition and talk to your friends and neighbours about the 20’s Plenty for Worthing campaign.

Will Worthing CLC let the people decide on 20's Plenty??

On Wednesday 25th Jan at 7pm at the Georgian Room, Chatsworth Hotel, 17-23 The Steyne, Worthing CLC will decide whether to go to a public consultation on 20 mph speed limits for residential roads.

You can read our campaign briefing for why they should here

School Safety Zones are not enough

97% of road collisions that injure Worthing’s children do not happen in areas covered by School Safety Zones. West Sussex has spent a total of £170,000 on School Safety Zones in Worthing, yet they cover just 2 miles of road making them 30 times more expensive per mile than 20’s Plenty.

Cars have evolved to go faster – but humans haven't

Interesting article which states:

“Survivability refers to the body’s capacity to tolerate the energy transfer in accidents. Evidence shows that on access roads, where crashes involving pedestrians are likely, a 20mph (30kph) limit is appropriate.”
