Whenever you read scientific literature about a 30 km/h speed limit and road safety, you´ll come across publications by Prof. Dr. Maria Limbourg. The child psychologist and mobility researcher worked as a professor at the German University of Tübingen and the University Duisburg/Essen influencing studies in the areas of mobility education, “children and mobility” and ”senior citizens and mobility”. We are very glad that she is supporting our initiative. Let’s find out about her reasons why.Read More
Good news! Firstly, the software problems are fixed and citizens can now sign in 12 different languages.
And secondly, citizens from all member states of the EU have already signed our initiative. The first hurdle of the EU law on European Citizens´ Initiatives (ECI) has been cleared.
For a successful ECI, at least three requirements of signature gathering must be fulfilled:
1) Signatures (officially known as “statements of support”) must come from at least 7 countries. This hurdle was easily achieved some days ago. We are now facing the more difficult challenges number two and three:
2) A minimum number of signatories in at least 7 member states must be gained. The quora differs from country to country. The highest quorum is in Germany (74 250 signatures), the lowest in Cyprus. Luxembourg and Malta (4,500 signatures). We are excitedly anticipating and guessing which country will be the first to meet the quorum?
3) At least one million valid signatures within one year. This is a real challenge.
Therefore, sign up today and tell all your family, friends and colleagues to do so too.Read More

This European Citizens´ Initiative is part of a huge experiment. We can sense this every day reading the emails about failures of the collection software. Even more so as we cannot upload other languages due to programming errors. People in Finland, Greece, Portugal – all have to sign an English text, or they must wait. However,Read More
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.Read More
Only one day after the online-announcement of the ECI to the European commission, two 30km/h-activists had a direct talk to the EU transport commissioner, Siim Kallas. This is of special value as the commission is already discussing next steps on urban transport.Read More
The “European Citizens´ Initiative” for a EU wide 30km/h urban speed limit has been announced. Activists from eight EU member states have put the proposal to the European Commission today. As “European Mobility Week” commences this call highlights the importance of safer, quieter urban and village roads and better air quality for all through speed limit reduction. Legal checks of this initiative must be completed within 2 months.Read More
