The cities of Edinburgh and Belfast have both introduced 20mph speed restrictions on certain of their roads in recent years. This has been advanced in both places as offering a mixture of transport and public health benefits. NIHR have funded an evaluation of the consequences of the decisions. One part of that broader investigation has been a study of the way evidence was (and was not) part of the decision making process. This paper reports some findings about the processes involved and the ways that that decision makers worked to get the schemes introduced.
