Brake, the road safety charity, alongside a GO 20 coalition, is appealing to drivers to slow down to 20mph around homes, schools and shops, and is particularly highlight it for this Road Safety Week (19-25 November 2012).

Dr Phillip Lee has put his support behind the initiative and said: "Reducing speeds in Bracknell constituency would reduce casualties.

"Research shows that for each 1mph speed reduction, casualties decrease by 5% and fewer crashes reduces the burden on the NHS, emergency services and our local economy."
