Phoenix Approves Speed Limit Reductions

Phoenix approved changes to speed lim­its on 15 streets as of the ’s Vision Zero effort, reports Kevin Stone for KTAR News. The city will speed lim­its by 5 miles per hour to improve safe­ty. “The Phoenix Street Trans­porta­tion Depart­ment post­ed speed lim­its twice a year and rec­om­mends changes it deems .”

“Of the changes, 12 are relat­ed to road and traf­fic con­di­tions and are for keep­ing where the post­ed lim­its did­n’t match the cur­rent ordi­nance.” The pri­or speed lim­its on the select­ed seg­ments ranged from 35 to 50 miles per hour.

See the arti­cle for a list of the affect­ed seg­ments and the rea­sons for the speed reduc­tions.
