In 2011 we were invited to
Brussels to talk to MEPs and EU officials about the success of our
campaign in the UK. This was especially relevent because the EU
Transport and Tourism Committee were developing their report on Road
safety in the EU.
We were delighted that on 21st June the committee approved the
report. In its press release the committee announced :-
"MEPs call for a 30km/h speed limit in all residential areas and

the youngest possible age."
