Yorkshire Post: "Lower speeds save lives and revive communities"

"THE number of pedestrians and cyclists dying on Britain’s roads is on the rise. In 2011, overall deaths rose by three per cent to 1,901. Within that figure, the climb in pedestrian deaths was much faster – up by 12 per cent to 453 deaths – with children and older people suffering the greatest increases.

"Deaths for cyclists jumped in the year to 2012. And although the number of road deaths fell slightly last year, the proportion of pedestrians and cyclists being killed or seriously injured has been steadily rising for many years.

"Road crashes remain the most likely single cause of death for older children and young adults in the UK. A car or lorry is almost invariably involved and in the vast majority of cases they are travelling at more than 20mph."
