20's Plenty for Faversham

20's Plenty for Faversham

We urge Kent County Council to implement a town-wide 20mph speed limit in Faversham.

Why is this important?

Kent County Council has a statutory requirement to take into account the needs of ALL road users when setting local speed limits.

In 2014, Kent recorded an 11% increase in the number of people killed or seriously injured on its roads.

At 20mph

EVERYBODY benefits, including the most vulnerable members of our community.

Child pedestrian accidents decrease by up to 70%.

Slower speeds are elderly, disability and dementia friendly, reducing casualties by up to 20%.

Walking and cycling become safer and more attractive modes of transport.

Toxic diesel fumes are reduced to the equivalent of taking half of all petrol cars off the road.

Traffic flow improves and congestion is eased.

Journey times are increased by only a few seconds.

Area-wide, blanket speed limits cost less to implement and are more effective than separate zones.

On August 24th 2015 Faversham Town Council pledged their support for a 20mph scheme throughout Faversham Town

Over 15m people are now living in 20mph boroughs.

We deserve the same!

Thank you for your support

Reasons for signing

  • Absolutely fed-up with cars and especially motor-bikes speeding around our estate. No consideration for anyone but themselves. My poor little cat was recently mown down and killed by one of these speeding morons. Notwithstanding that, there is sheltered accommodation for the elderly in our road and I fear for their safety.
  • Sick and tired of worrying about my childrens safety whilst idiots racing around our estate and wheel spinning. Totally unnecessary. Only a matter of time before we have a fatality.
  • Sick and tired of seeing vehicles cars and lorries speeding up and down Whitstable road, practically using the speed humps as ramps for there own enjoyment. I went to pull out from the junction of gaskin road onto whitstable road and a car went past exceeding 60mph enoughs enough. When will they stop perhaps when it comes to a fatality which I see far to much on the roads.
