Should we drop the speed limit to 30km/h?

Gareth Parker

The speed limit in local Perth streets dropped to 50km/h almost 17 years ago, but a transit planner says dropping it even further will save lives.

Making the speed limit in built up areas 30km/h will only add about one-minute to your commute but could save plenty of lives according to Tim Judd, Director at GTA Consultants.

“The probability of being killed when hit at 30km/h is significantly less than being killed when hit at 50km/h like the roads are today,” Mr Judd told 6PR Breakfast.

Baz was surprised when Mr Judd said around 25 people die in 50km/h zones or less per year.

Our listeners joined the conversation to argue why they were or weren’t in favour of the proposal.
