Mark Ruskell, Scottish Green MSP for Mid Scotland & Fife, today (12 Feb) published Freedom of Information requests which show a "postcode lottery" of road safety across Scotland.
Councils were asked how many 20mph zones they have. The results show a huge variation, with Clackmannanshire saying all residential streets are 20mph and Edinburgh saying the majority of its streets are 20mph with a further 810 zones planned. By contrast, North Ayrshire Council only has four permanent 20mph zones and Falkirk has none. Neither plans to introduce any new 20mph zones.
