Brussels moves to zone 30 this Friday: all you need to know


#In #Brussels, the maximum authorized speed by default in the capital will become 30km / h this #Friday. The #Brussels #Minister of #Mobility #Elke #Van #Den #Brandt (#Groen) and #Bruxelles #Mobilité recalled five landmarks to remember in order to integrate the concept of #City 30 into their journeys.

#First of all, it means that the speed of 30 km / h applies everywhere, except on certain structural axes, with a speed limited and specifically indicated at 50 or 70 km / h. #In the meeting areas, the authorized speed is 20 km / h.

#This obligation is imposed on everyone, even on separate cycle paths or clean sites, except for trams, snow plows and emergency vehicles on mission. The objective of #Ville 30 is above all to save lives by reducing the risk of accidents and their severity using the gear lever. #According to #Bruxelles #Mobilité, the risk of death for pedestrians is five times higher at 50 km / h than at 30 km / h. #In the car, the risk of being killed or seriously injured (drivers and passengers) is 15% at 30 km / h, against 45% at 50 km / h. #In addition, going from 50 to 30 km / h halves the noise pollution caused by road traffic: between 2.5 and 3.9 dB (A) depending on the type of pavement.

#According to #Bruxelles #Mobilité and #Minister #Elke #Van den #Brandt, reducing speed will also help calm the city and encourage alternatives to the private car such as walking and cycling. #Finally there will be checks by the police from #January 1. #Sanctions will be taken, as for any violation of the highway code “but the goal is not to increase the number of fines or to ‘flash’ everyone, but rather to get users to respect 30 km / h”, said the spokesperson for #Bruxelles #Mobilité and #Ms. #Van den #Brandt. #At all entrances to the capital, specific signs inform motorists about the new rule.

The placement of 50 km / h and 70 km / h signs indicating exceptions on major roads has also been completed. #During the first weeks of 2021, the 6,000 ‘start’ and ‘end’ signs of zone 30 will be removed in the different neighborhoods.
