20 mph Bill…

Scotland could lead the way internationally with the proposed bill on restricting residential urban areas to 20 mph. The Rural Economy and Connectivity committee (who oversee Transport issues) are examining the proposed bill over the next few months. Several of our local MSPs are involved in that committee: Edward Mountain, Gail Ross and John Finnie. http://www.parliament.scot/parliamentarybusiness/CurrentCommittees/99826.aspx

The most effective form of campaigning is for our local MSPs to realise how much this matters to individual constituents. So if you feel strongly, as OYSI does, that 20mph is a safer speed for our residential areas, why not get in touch with your MSP – sometimes going to their surgery is the best way to make your voice heard. You can find your MSP’s contact details here: http://www.parliament.scot/mspfinder/index.html
