The 20mph speed limit is not safer or better for the planet

An interesting piece by Philip Pilkington for Unherd. I posted the following comments:

20mph speed limits in almost all the places I’ve experienced them are insane. If the sole objective is to reduce death and injury of pedestrians, why 20mph, why not 10mph? And if 10mph, why not 0mph, and ban cars, vans and lorries? Just allow pedestrians and cyclists (both with a maximum speed of 3mph) on roads. We’d all be a lot fitter, and the air quality would be great!!!
