Latest IAM poll
The latest IAM poll is on 20 mph speed limits, pedestrian areas, and so on. It also asks about woonerfs (areas with no signage, based on a Dutch idea, which I have discussed before).
Have a go here (you don't need to be a member, etc.).
For what it's worth, I have no problem with 20 mph limits in the appropriate areas (residential districts, outside schools and so on). There is a direct connection between the limit and the reason for the limit, and the limited area is clearly defined. France (where I am until tomorrow morning) has many of these limits: in fact, villages without the huge, soft speed cushions and the 30 kph signage are quite rare. Compliance seems to be very high, as you might expect where a law is sensible and restricted to the immediate need.
