20's plenty...

[Further to my earlier posts on this matter:]

It is obvious that introducing 20mph limits for residential streets in Norwich would reduce traffic casualties. And what could be more important than that?

But not only that; if we reduced the speed limit, we would reduce CO2 emissions, at the same time. Here's why:
'Modal shift' is the key to red
ucing carbon emissions. Cars driving too fast (and resultantly dangerous streets) is the
key reason why people do not shift to getting about by bike and foot. Ergo:
reducing speed
limits is the key to reducing emissions.

[Here are some good links on the emerging cameras technology that will enable 20mph zones to be policed properly:
