20mph petition – blocked by Glasgow City Council!

20mph petition

Glasgow City Council have, to date, refused to allow a petition calling for a 20mph speed limit to be the norm  on the city’s streets on the grounds they are already doing enough!  This article in today’s Herald quotes Bob Downie’s (pictured centre) findings that, under their current rate of progress, it will take 37 years to reach the same level as Edinburgh aims to achieve in 3!

It’s an excellent article on page 11 of the Herald, with a taster on page 1.  Do read it and do write into the Herald, with a copy to your councillors, expressing your disappointment at this move to prevent us voicing our opinion that we want a healthy, active and safe environment in our city.
