REPORT: A Report on key outcomes following the implementation of 20mph speed limits in the City of Edinburgh

Dr. Glenna Nightingale and Professor Ruth Jepson on behalf of the NIHR 20mph evaluation project team
October 28th , 2019

This report is prepared by the “Is twenty plenty for health?” project team, based at the University of Edinburgh and several other Universities around the UK. ┬áThe project team is conducting an evaluation of the public health impact of the 20mph speed limit policies in Edinburgh and Belfast (results not reported here). This project is funded by the NIHR and final results will not be available until after August 2020.

The aim of this interim report is to provide an overview of changes in vehicle speed and volume and road traffic collision rates resulting in personal injury before and after the implementation of the 20mph speed limits in Edinburgh.

Further analyses will include the use of time series and spatio-temporal models for assessing the trend (temporal and spatial) of road traffic collisions in the City of Edinburgh.
