Motion text

That this House welcomes the recent Transport, Local Government and the Regions Select Committee report on road traffic speed; notes the clear evidence that speed is a major contributory factor in over a third of road crashes; which translates into over 1,100 fatalities every year; further notes that speeding traffic makes walking and cycling less attractive and is a blight on the quality of life of both urban and rural communities; and calls upon the Government to implement the key recommendations of the select committee's report, including revising the safety camera partnership guidelines to allow local decision-making about the siting of cameras, introducing maximum speed limits of 30mph in villages and 20 mph in many residential areas, some mixed routes and around schools, and increasing funding for traffic calming measures.
