The Department published a comprehensive three-year evaluation of the effect of 20mph signed-only limits in November 2018.

The report found that while 20mph limits were supported by the majority of residents and drivers, there was insufficient evidence to conclude that that the introduction of 20mph limits in residential areas had led to a significant change in collisions and casualties.
