Scottish National Party

Date lodged: 8 May 2018

To ask the Scottish Government what its position is on establishing a default speed of 20mph speed limits in urban areas.

Answered by: Humza Yousaf 15 May 2018

The Scottish Government believes that Local Authorities are best placed to take decisions on the implementation of 20 mph speed limits on local roads, as they are currently empowered to do.

In relation to a default speed limit of 20 mph, the Government has committed to consider any relevant evidence that may emerge from Mr Ruskell's proposed Member's Bill.
