A man has painted a 30mph sign the height of a double decker bus on the side of his house in a Devon village.
…And let’s be honest, it’s hard not to love 30 kph (~20mph) zones. The British Medical Journal published a study on 20mph zones over a 20 year period with the following results:
- Casualties as a whole were reduced by 41.9%
- There was a fall of 37.6% of killed or seriously injured cyclists
- The numbers of killed or seriously injured children were reduced by half
- The greatest reduction of cycling casualties was amongst children (aged 0-15)
