According to the WSJ, the New York State legislature has passed a bill that would allow NYC to lower its default speed limit from 30 to 25 miles per hour.  Governor Cuomo is expected to sign the legislation, which is part of Mayor de Blasio's Vision Zero plan to eliminate traffic deaths.

Mr. de Blasio said, “This is a huge step forward as we work to save lives and make our streets safer. Reducing speeding is a critical element of our Vision Zero initiative, and we applaud the State Legislature for empowering New York City to lower speed limits and better protect our people.”

What do you think of the speed limit reduction?
