Reduce traffic speeds to encourage more cyclists onto the roads

Opportunities for safe cycling on all roads should be a priority.  E-bikes are a game changer for many.  Panniers work well for most shopping trips.  If traffic speeds could be reduced by means of a lower all-Island speed limit this would only add minutes to the longest car journey, but would increase confidence in diffident and newbie cyclists and help them get mobile on two wheels. 

Why the contribution is important

More cycling = less carbon

    As a driver I think this is a good idea. We live in a congested island which is full of very large cars. These vehicles are very powerful, and quite unsuitable for our roads. Slowing them down is important.
