Lyon sets a limit of 30 km / h on its roads

After Paris, another French city, Lyon, announced that it will reduce the speed limit on its roads, with drivers being able to drive at up to 30 km / h.

Gregory Doucet, mayor of France’s third largest city with a population of 516,000, is fulfilling his campaign commitment, with the new speed limit coming into force in the spring of 2022, with the aim of reducing the number of road accidents, but also of noise pollution due to vehicle traffic.

As he said:

In the coming spring we will move in the city with 30 km / h. Almost all roads will have a limit of 30 km / h, except for specific roads of increased traffic, where the limit will remain at 50 km / h.

The mayor of Lyon cites as an example other European cities, such as Brussels, or urban centers in Spain and the Netherlands that have already adopted the above practice and recorded 40% fewer accidents in urban areas.
