6th UN Global Road Safety Week 2021

17 May 2021

Low speed streets save lives and are the heart of any community. 30 km/h (20 mph) speed limits where people and traffic mix make for streets that are healthy, green and liveable, in other words, streets for life.

We’re calling on policymakers to act for low speed streets worldwide, limiting speeds to 30 km/h (20 mph) where people walk, live and play. 

Join the #Love30 campaign to call for 30 km/h speed limits to be the norm for cities, towns and villages worldwide.
