This pamphlet proves that children in deprived neighbourhoods are most likely to be involved in road accidents and recommends that speed limits should be reduced to 20 mph.

Britain has a bad record on child pedestrian safety.

This report provides evidence to show that children in deprived neighbourhoods, those least likely to be travelling by car, are at greatest risk. It recommends that traffic calmed 20 mph zones should become the norm in residential areas, prioritising deprived areas with high casualty rates.

The report also argues that the Government should concentrate on making streets safe and liveable for children and worry less about whether they are perceived as pro- or anti-car.
