20 MPH Zones More Haste Less Speed

10 June 2008

The Royal Automobile Club Foundation' presented a paper at a one day conference at Aston University on speed management today which showed that 95% of all pedestrian casualties and 92% of cyclist casualties are killed or injured on built up roads with speed limits under 40mph. Speed is not the only factor which leads to these accidents as driver behaviour, which includes speed, is a factor in 26% of all accidents, whereas failing to look is the biggest cause of collisions (68%).
