Title: “30 km/h - making the streets liveable!"
Current status: Insufficient support
Commission registration number: ECI(2012)000014
Date of registration: 13/11/2012
Registration language: EN / Other languages available: CS DE EL EN ES ET FI FR HU IT NL PL SL SV
Subject-matter: We suggest a 30km/h (20mph) EU-wide default speed limit for urban/residential areas. Local authorities may set other speed limits if they can show how environmental and safety needs of the most vulnerable road users are met.
Main objectives: The EU has clear road safety and environmental goals but these are not yet met. A 30km/h (20mph) standard speed limit would help to implement them more efficiently as it has proven successful in reducing injuries and fatalities, noise, air pollution and CO2 emissions, and improving the traffic flow. People can travel with less fear. Environmentally friendlier modes become more attractive. To meet the subsidiarity principle, the local authorities must have the final decision to set other speed limits on their roads and implement equivalent alternatives to meet the goals
Provisions of the Treaties considered relevant by the organisers: Articles 91.1(c) and 191 TFEU
