We the undersigned urge Bristol City Council to work with Avon police to enforce 20 mph zones already established in the city. We have seen a big increase in people king and cycling as a result of Lockdown. There are lots of things BCC could be doing to make sure this shift becomes permanent (creating cycle ways, widening pavements etc). But one doesnt require and new consultation or infrastructure, it simply requires us to properly enforce the existing speed limits.
There is plenty of evidence to show the impact of reduced speed
on injuries, fatalities and on the uptake of active travel (see
here http://www.20splenty.org/) It just
seems to me to be obvious that this would be a really simple way to
help people make the switch to walking and cycling. Anyway, thanks
