The City of Melbourne has implemented a 40km/h speed limit in Kensington as a result of community feedback. We have gathered data that indicates a reduced speed limit in Kensington will improve road safety outcomes.
Lower speed limits in these areas will save lives and prevent and reduce the amount of casualty accidents every year. A pedestrian hit by a vehicle travelling at 50km/h is four times more likely to be killed or seriously injured than if hit at 40km/h.
