Views sought on proposals for 20mph urban speed limit
A Holyrood committee is examining plans that could reduce road deaths and cut pollution.
Plans to reduce the speed limit to 20mph on Scotland's residential and urban streets are being considered by MSPs.
Holyrood's Rural Economy and Connectivity Committee has launched an inquiry inviting views from the public on whether they would support a change in the law to introduce the reduced limit in built up areas throughout the country.
The proposals are aimed at improving safety for pedestrians and cyclists and reducing pollution from vehicle emissions.
Edward Mountain MSP, committee convener, said: "Our inquiry will explore what impact a 20mph speed limit could have on communities, and whether this speed limit will help to make roads safer for pedestrians and cyclists.
"A number of local authorities across Scotland have already introduced a 20mph speed limit, but we want to find out whether there is support for a roll-out across Scotland.
"We look forward to hearing from a wide range of people, from members of the public to safety campaigners and local authorities."
Contributions are being taken from today until January 28 next year.
