article imageNYC plans to reduce speed limits to 25 MPH

By Owen Weldon     Jun 25, 2014 in Technology
New York - Bill de Blasio, the mayor of New York City, managed to convince legislators in Albany to agree to lower speed limits in NYC to 25 MPH.
The city's traffic lights' timing will be adjusted accordingly.
According to NY Times, the reduction from 30 MPH will not begin for at least three months after the governor of New York signs the bill — which lawmakers approved last Friday — into law. Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo is expected to sign the bill.
According to NY Daily News, the measure was a key part of the mayor's plan to reduce traffic fatalities.
Traffic deaths fell from 701 in 1990 to 286 in 2013.
De Blasio has proposed other measures in an effort to lower the number further, including tougher penalties on reckless drivers and installing speed cameras.
