Criteria met if you are verified by 20's Plenty For Us as having 20mph as the default speed limit for restricted roads.

20's Plenty For Us looks for councils that have a policy for setting 20mph for most roads: residential and high street roads.

This will include local authorities that have not implemented a 20mph speed limit for restricted roads but have passed the policy, as it can take 2-3 years to fully implement due to replacing the road signs.


Restricted roads are roads that due to lighting frequency are usually 30mph as according to national speed limits.

Marked using 20's Plenty for Us list of Councils to have implemented a 20mph default.

Where a national government has introduced 20mph as the norm for restricted roads all councils within that nation will be awarded the point.
