A campaign is being launched today at the start of Road Safety Week appealing to drivers and authorities across the West Midlands to 'GO 20'.
Brake, the road safety charity, is appealing to drivers to slow down to 20mph or below in communities.
The charity is also calling for widespread 20mph speed limits in built up areas.
'GO 20' benefits:
- Fewer casualties
- More walking and cycling
- More active, happier communities
- Less pollution
- Lower public spending
