Advisers call for milk test

New housing developments should be subject to a "pint of milk test", a government report advised this week.

The Parliamentary Advisory Council for Transport Safety recommended that schemes should be tested on whether residents can reach a shop to buy a pint of milk in less than ten minutes without using a vehicle.

It also called for speed limits in built-up areas to be reduced to 20mph. Executive director Robert Gifford commented: "What you get is more walking, more cycling and fewer people being killed or injured, while the environment also benefits."
