30kph – Making Streets Liveable

The European Citizen’s initiative to have a new speed limit of 30kph in urban areas will improve traffic safety, and make our cities a better place to live.

Sign the petition and help the initiative get to 1 million signatures!

30 km/h (20 mph) limits are an inexpensive and popular way to improve safety, cut pollution and encourage smarter travel choices. They lead to improved traffic flow and less congestion. People can move without fear. And so we want to achieve these benefits for the whole of the European Union. What is our vision? 30 km/h shall become the standard speed limits for villages, towns and cities with local authorities being able to decide on exemptions. Therefore, we will set the agenda for the European Commission. We want the commission to come up with a proposal to introduce 30 km/h speed limits.
