Limiting speed to 30 km/hr works!

On January 1st, 2021, Brussels introduced a 30 km/h (18 mph) citywide speed limit.

Within one year, overall speeds decreased 9%, collisions 22%, fatalities 50%, and traffic noise up to 50% (depending on the surface). Journey times by car were identical or even slightly shorter.

What amazing benefits. We could do this too in Australia if we really tried.
