When we think about ‘protecting the environment’ it is often far-flung places and exotic endangered animals that spring to the mind’s eye. What about the human environment?
The ETA believes people have a right to feel safe where they live. Children should be able to play in the streets around their homes without fear of traffic. It is this belief which led us to introduce the idea of 20’s Plenty back in the 1990s and become a founding partner in the resulting campaign – a call for 20mph limits where people live. Humane speed limits in residential and built-up areas are a basic mark of respect for pedestrians, cyclists and all human life.
20’s Plenty is now run externally, with continued backing and support of the ETA Trust. From just a handful of locations when the campaign was launched, more than 11 million British citizens now reside in a 20mph street. If you aren’t one of them, there are a number of things you can do:
Donate – Your donation goes towards lobbying politicians to roll out wider 20mph areas and make it easier for them to be introduced and enforced.
