From John Knight, on behalf of 20's Plenty for Cheshire East
Petition hits 1000!
The UN votes to make 20mph limits the road safety standard in residential areas across the world, so why not in Cheshire East?!
On 21st October, after two postponements because of the pandemic, Cheshire East council will finally be given the chance to vote to make 20mph speed limits the default on all residential streets where pedestrians, cyclists or other vulnerable road users mix with motor vehicles.
A petition set up by 20's Plenty for Cheshire East has hit 1000 signatures and is still rising fast. Speeding on residential streets remains one of the most common complaints made to councillors. Many people are too scared to walk or cycle or to let their children do so.
20mph limits bring fewer and less severe accidents, reduced emissions, less congestion and noise, healthier lifestyles, better community life and a stronger economy.
We want Cheshire East to be a caring community, where the needs of residents come first. 20mph limits improve the quality of life, helping to create spaces where walking, cycling, conversations and playing are prioritised over traffic.
There are already 20 million people in the UK living in local authorities with 20mph default speed limits in residential areas, including Cheshire West and Warrington, and the whole of Wales. So why not Cheshire East?
Contact your councillors to make sure they vote for 20mph limits on your street!
