The UK supports the aims of the Stockholm Declaration on road safety. The UK is already committed to the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and already adopts a safe system approach to road safety.

We recognise that speed limits play an important part in road safety, and we already encourage local authorities to consider 20 mph where it is appropriate
