NYC: Citizens Demand 20 MPH Slow Zones

Posted by Infra on Tuesday, March 25th, 2014

On Saturday and Sunday, March 15th & 16th, Right of Way organized events helping 10 communities that have applied for Neighborhood Slow Zones, but have yet to receive any traffic calming infrastructure from the city, install their own “20 is Plenty” signs.

Streetfilms visited a well-attended event of 35 activists and volunteers in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. There’s a big push citiwide in NYC from many sides including traffic safety neighborhood groups, advocacy groups and NYC councilmembers to get Albany’s state government to pass a “home rule” law allowing NYC to set the city wide speed limit at 20 mph.

Also for reference, there is a very successful group in the UK that has accomplished much thru their 20 is Plenty campaign That Streetfilm can be watched here on vimeo: vimeo.com/14549963 In the UK over 3 million people live in 20 mph zones.
