Reading Lib Dems have led the campaign for many years for the introduction of 20mph zones in residential roads in Reading to increase road safety and cut accidents.
The Coalition Government has recently relaxed restrictions on councils making it easier for them to introduce 20mph zones and variable speed limits outside schools.
We are calling for action now.
We the undersigned call on the Lead Member for Transport on Reading Borough Council to bring forward proposals as soon as possible to introduce 20mph zones in all residential areas across Reading prioritising neighbourhoods which contain schools, health centres, leisure services and shopping areas frequented by pedestrians, children and the elderly.
The Bring in 20 mph zones to residential roads in Reading petition to Reading Borough Council was written by Daisy Benson and is in the category Local Government at GoPetition.
