More information about Slower is Safer

In 2013, Birmingham City Council asked everyone in Birmingham about the principle of introducing 20mph speed limits on the city’s roads to improve safety and reduce the number of accidents.

20 mph zones have already been implemented in three areas of the city – City Centre (A1), Central East (A2) and Central South (A3).  The Central South-West areas is the next area where changes will take place. The purpose of this consultation is to ask local people about the appropriate speed limit for the roads in their area before deciding whether to introduce lower speed limits.
