    Almost every village centre in France is subject to a 30kph, 19mph)speed limit, in most cases policed by permanent safety cameras. Result – peaceful safe villages!

    70% of motorists exceed the present 30 mph urban speed limit (Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions. Comparative study of European child pedestrian exposure and accidents. Norwich: HMSO, 1999). Two thirds of all accidents in which people are killed or injured happen in areas with a 30 mph limit (Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions. "Kill your speed" campaign website. http://www.detr.gov.uk/campaigns/kys99/index.htm). Government research showed that 20 mph zones reduced the incidence of traffic accidents by 60% and cut child pedestrian and child cyclist accidents by 67%, while overall vehicle speeds fell by an average 9.3 mph (14.9 kph). See Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions. Review of traffic calming schemes in 20mph zones. London: DETR, 1996. http://www.roads.detr.gov.uk/roadsafety/research98/road/6a.htm#S204F. \r\n\r\nThis approach is far more urgently needed than reducing the drink drive limit\r\n
