Adopt a Downtown Speed Limit

To make speed limits stick, make them district-wide
  • Jeff Speck


SPEED LIMITS DON’T MATTER, MUCH. But they matter. Speed limits in cities have limited impact because of the way that drivers set their speed in cities. It is the opposite of what occurs on highways. Think about your own experience, and how you set your speed on a highway. If you are like most people, you wait for a speed limit sign, and then set your cruise control for a speed a little bit above it.
