An on-line petition to introduce a 20mph speed limit on Elgin Avenue in Maida Vale has been started by Westminster’s Labour Councillors.
The petition can be found at
Councillor Paul Dimoldenberg, Leader of the Labour Group, said;
“Residents say that Elgin Avenue is becoming more dangerous as drivers speed up and down to the detriment of pedestrians and cyclists. Introducing a 20 mph speed limit in residential areas in Westminster will cut deaths and serious injuries on our roads. It will cut accidents by 40%, save 8 lives and 600 injuries every year, as well as saving £50 million a year in hospital, police, ambulance and other costs.”
