20's Plenty for St Albans District
20mph - A saner speed for safer streets
We've all seen it too often, cars going too fast. Going out on your bike, or walking to the shops can be quite scary.
We are campaigning for 20mph to be the default speed limit in St Albans and Harpenden.
Across the UK default20mph is becoming the default but not in Herts. We're trying hard to catch up but Herts County Council doesn't agree. We need your support.
Like you, we want safe streets - streets for walking, cycling and playing in.
Wide-area 20mph zones are the best and most cost effective way to encourage walking and cycling for shorter journeys.
With 20mph, streets are safer, friendlier, healthier.
It makes sense.
If you want safer streets, what can you do?
20s Plenty for St Albans District is part of 20s Plenty for Hertfordshire (see right). We work with other groups across the County because Hertfordshire County Council is responsible for the speed limit on your street.
