The EU Commission has officially accepted our European Citizens´ Initiative “30km/h – making the streets liveable!”. The decision was made after a two-month legal check. This success means that gathering statements fo support for a 30 km/h urban speed limit throughout the whole of the European Union can begin. People can already sign the initiative.Until now, European legislators have acted rather helplessly regarding speed limits. In 1987, the EU Commission announced a legislative procedure to introduce unionwide speed limits. But nothing concrete has happened since, as opponents have claimed that road speed was outside the EU´s remit. This is no longer true. The positive result of the legal check shows that the EU is the right body to set standards like a 30km/h speed limit. This puts an end to a long-lasting stalemate.
