Plans to go slower on the roads of capital
DRIVERS could soon be forced to travel at just 20mph on the capital's streets.
Green charity Sustrans has backed proposals to reduce speed limits in the City of London.
The City of London's Court of Common Council sanctioned the scheme as part of its Road Danger Reduction Plan.
The charity said that slashing the speed limit could help to cut the number of deaths on the capital's roads by 10 per cent.
Supporters added that the plan would add just a minute onto drivers' journey.
Sustrans' London deputy director Matt Winfield said reducing the speed limit would make the city's streets better for walking, cycling and socialising.
