The 20mph/30kph debate

11 April 2012

On 15th May 2012, the IBSR (The Belgian Road Safety Institute) will organise an event to debate the possibility of 30km/h per hour becoming the general speed limit in built-up areas. The seminar will ask why and with what consequences this could come about. The situation and experience in Belgium will be presented alongside expert opinions and testimonies from cities that have adopted a 30km/h general speed limit.

Registration for the event must be done directly with the IBSR. For further information, the agenda and registration details are available here.  Simultaneous translation into French, Dutch and English will be provided.
