Crackdown on anti-driver road schemes and blanket 20mph limits to put local consent first

The Department for Transport has published draft statutory guidance for councils on low traffic neighbourhoods (LTNs), setting out that they must gain buy-in from local residents, businesses and emergency services when considering implementing new LTN schemes.

These measures from the “Plan for Drivers” will improve drivers’ lives, shorten journey times, and ensure traffic measures have buy-in from the people they impact.

Full details can be found on the site at the following link:  Plan for Drivers


  1. Anti driver is a loaded and unhelpful title, unless I am mistaken.
    I am anti local school buses chugging away parked up polluting our environment and causing inconvenience to residents, they should be asked to consider smaller vehicles and possible electric options.
    I have images of coaches stopped actors the pedestrian crossing at the butchers


  2. 20 mph I conclude is progesssive suggestion in all urban residential areas, particularly like our area with the number of schools, feel this might be red meat suggestion to influence rural voters, where is obviously would be unhelpful t o many

  3. It’s very unclear what “local consent” will actually mean in practice. The headline seems to imply some sort of approval however what is described on the government website is more akin to a consultation / community engagement, not dissimilar to that we have already had.

  4. I think todays reporting how the ULES is to be used politically in the run up to the next election cycle appalling and potentially even racist again
