20’s Plenty for Us is contributing to collecting 1 million signatures for the European Citizen’s Initiative (ECI) for 20mph/30kph. It’s a people-powered call for 20mph to be the default European speed limit for built up areas. The success of 20’s Plenty in the UK is part of the reason this was established.
Changing the built up default to 20mph without signage would be cheaper and quicker than changing the road signs locality by locality (our campaign focus thus far).
So, before 12 November 2013 we want to submit 54,750+signatures from the UK (our quoratenumber). A lot!
Please do so online at https://30kmh.eu/oct-web-public/?lang=en
If you have them, please post this on your facebook, newsletters, email lists etc.
How about aiming for 25 signatures a month for every campaign?
Please let me know if you would appreciate having forms printed out for you and posted – off list to email@example.com –
We offer everyone a bundle of 30 forms (i.e. 180 signature spaces) and reply paid envelope.
We aim to have a formal presentation of ECI signatures at the 20’s Plenty conference at Coventry Transport Museum on 23rd May 2013. The person or campaign having the most (paper) signatures (I don’t think we can track the on-line ones for this offer – though they obviously do count to the 1m total) sent to Rod King (address on form) by the 27th April will be invited to present the signatures a the conference – i.e. a free place.
Help and suggestions on promoting this initiative are most welcome.
