20 is plenty!

20 mph residential street

I love StreetFilms! There is nothing like the visual to cause one to reconsider what one thinks one knows. And here is a film short on 20 mph speeds on residential streets in England, the 20 is Plenty, For Us campaign. Most of the streets shown either were narrow to begin with, or have traffic calming measures installed, so our widest streets in Carson City would need something done to them to make this practical. Just imagine, though, drivers and bicyclists and pedestrians sharing streets as common space rather than funnels for impatience and pollution.

One thought on “20 is plenty!

  1. Now that school is back in session, the morning route is full of speeding parents, running late, accelerating hard, and railing the corners. What’s sad is that these same people probably don’t feel comfortable letting their kids walk or ride to school…because the roads are unsafe! Bike lanes just aren’t enough for the kids when they have to ride alongside 35mph traffic.
