Bristol City Council has issued this statement about the new 20mph zones in the city:
The vision of 20 mph is to help create more pleasant communities for us all to enjoy. Slower speeds and ultimately reduced car use for local trips will lead to a less noisy and more people-centred community. The reduced speed also makes it easier to cross roads, particularly for children and the elderly, and access local facilities helping to build stronger communities, and encouraging children to become more active.
