Anna Semlyen: Why 20's Plenty

Road danger is the biggest risk we face daily. Learn about, and ask questions on the science behind setting speed limits. Find out why 20mph matters where people live, work, shop and learn.

The UK is in transition to a 20mph limit. 12m people already live where 20mph is, or will be the norm – eg 90% of Birmingham, 95% of York.

The speaker will bust the speed limit myths - humps are not required and that 20mph limits do not have much effect on urban journey times. Also that 20mph limits reduce pollution and can be enforced.

Plus advice on how to be an effective activist from an award winning campaigner. Anna supports[masked]’s Plenty for Us campaign groups Nationwide, is a City of York Councillor and Transport Scrutiny Chair and author of Cutting Your Car Use, the world’s best selling guide to driving less (140,000 copies sold).

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
