Kingston-upon-Hull ? Safe & Liveable Streets for Children

School Community based, 2003

The City of Hull has more than one hundred 20mph zones covering a quarter of its road length, in total 120 miles of road subject to 20mph limit. Hull has about a quarter of a million people with a relatively high level of deprivation. Using traffic calming methods introduced with the close involvement of the community and emergency services for the 20mph zones accident figures have improved dramatically-between 20 and 40%. This community involvement included the adoption of road signs designed by the local children.
