Lowering speeds is fundamental to reducing road danger and Transport for London is actively developing a strategy to increase the number of communities which will benefit from 20mph speed limits and speed reductions. My Vision Zero Action Plan, due to be published this summer, will include details on our approach and timescales for implementing lower speeds as well as measures to achieve compliance.
