Certain zones within Gloucester and some nearby villages already have 20mph limits, accompanied by some traffic calming measures. But drivers coming off adjoining roads with 30mph and 40mph limits often fail to slow to 20mph. This is a problem often found where there are piecemeal speed zones.
Our aim is for 'Total 20', where people live without traffic calming in Gloucester. We also hope to encourage surrounding villages and towns to have their own 20's Plenty groups.
To start to bring about a public discussion about how we share our streets, we are aiming to collect as many signatures as possible for a petition, which we will present to Gloucestershire County Council.
