Restricted speed zones
Reducing your speed when driving makes a huge difference to the number and severity of crashes and injuries. You can find tips and resources about road safety, as well as links to statistics and reports on the Think! website.
We have '20 zones' across the Borough, where we encourage you to reduce your speed by using traffic calming features. You can use our online reporting form if you want us to assess your road for possible traffic calming measures.
20mph speed limit
The 20mph speed limit is for residential estates only. It is enforceable and covered by a traffic regulation order, so you could be fined if you speed. You'll see a pair of 20mph speed limit signs where zone starts, smaller signs at regular intervals, and road markings.
There are several areas in Walsall with a 20mph speed limit:
- Broadway Estate (Sandringham Avenue)
- Summer Hayes (The Hayes)
- Pheasey Estate
- Rushall (Barns Lane)
