Members of the Scottish Parliament's Economy Jobs and Fair Work Committee have made a series of recommendations, which they believe could "set the groundwork'' for this task.
Study To Examine Impact Of 20mph Speed Limits
The impact of 20mph speed limits on safety and public health is to be examined in a new study.
Researchers will evaluate how the policy of reducing the limit from 30mph has worked in parts of Edinburgh and Belfast.
Rates of traffic accidents and injuries before and after the change will be measured to look at whether road safety has been enhanced.
Any change in transport use will also be scrutinised by examining the take-up of cycling and walking, while local residents will also be asked their opinions of the move.
The research team, led by the University of Edinburgh and the Scottish Collaboration for Public Health Research and Policy, hopes the project will inform other cities planning to introduce lower speed limits.
The study is the largest of its kind in the UK and will run until 2020.
Dr Ruth Jepson, from the university's Usher Institute of Population Health Sciences and Informatics, said: "We are excited to launch this major project, which we hope will provide very important insights into the public health effects of such initiatives.
"We anticipate that our broad focus will generate a wealth of evidence and learning that will be invaluable for informing future roll-outs of similar schemes in the UK and around the world.''
The study is funded by the National Institute for Health Research and involves partnership with other UK universities, NHS Health Scotland, and the charity Sustrans.
Andy Cope, director of insight, research and monitoring at Sustrans, said: "This study will provide vital intelligence on the impact of 20mph speed limits on safety and levels of physical activity. We await its findings with keen interest.''
Scientists say their findings pave the way for new therapies which mimic the effects of the sun's rays.
The incident happened on Sunday at around 12.10am in Dalmellington Road, Crookston.
The move was announced as London's Camden Council evacuated residents in four tower blocks amid fire safety fears there.
