We have put together some information to help you campaign for 20's Plenty
for your residential roads.
20s Plenty for Us is the national organisation campaigning
for 20 mph default speed limits, without traffic calming, where people live.
Campaigning can be very rewarding. We aim to maximise
that buzz by helping people to be effective at getting local road signs changed
to 20 mph.
Anna Semlyen’s Campaign Manager grant funded work is to
support local activists to press for change. Services are free (other than
materials like stickers), though we welcome donations. There are nearly
local 20s Plenty for Us groups around the country with some wonderfully
effective volunteer campaigners. 20s Plenty for Us offer anyone interested in
being active on 20mph limits the following: -
including a 4 minute video, leaflets, campaigners section, media section,
briefings – e.g. on air pollution, for transport professionals, press
releases, posters, graphics, stickers, template petitions, template letters
to councillors, case studies of local campaigns, advice on arguing the case
to various professionals, power point presentations, 20s Plenty Rap Poetry
(a rhyming summary of our message) and we are constantly adding more.
20’s Plenty stickers in various sizes (for wheelie bins, car bumpers, car
windows and bikes)
