Birmingham council has set up online petitions and the first to appear was the 20s plenty campaign so please sign up.
The petition states:
Residential roads should not be grim thoroughfares serving only fast-moving vehicles. We believe that the benefits of a 20 mph speed limit would be felt throughout Birmingham on roads where we reside, shop locally and stroll.
There is strong evidence to support a maximum speed limit of 20 mph for residential roads throughout our City. The Government supports the introduction of 20 mph, and the Conservatives now support 20 mph ‘in all urban areas’.
Our residential roads should allow everyone a range of uses. Our residential roads should be a shared space on which residents, shoppers, pedestrians and cyclists, young and old are not second place to car drivers.
So please sign up at and make Birmingham a safe, vibrant and people-centred environment.
