VISION ZERO: US JURISDICTIONS LOWER SPEED LIMITS

Biking Elsewhere-> The Washington Post reports jurisdictions across the United States, including those in the Washington region, are embracing lower speed limits as the key to reversing the recent rise in traffic fatalities. Their efforts include lowering default speed limits and those in major corridors, and creating slow-driving zones in areas with heavy pedestrian traffic.

The District has committed to end traffic-related deaths by 2024, with a plan that lowers the default speed limit to 20 mph from 25 on some neighborhood streets and creating 15 mph zones from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. on roadways around schools, parks, and senior and youth centers. http://wapo.st/2n44QwR

[B' Spokes: This caught my eye because of the inclusion of parks, and senior and youth centers not just schools.]
