Mayor de Blasio's Statement on State Legislature's Passage of Speed Limit Bill

June 20, 2014

"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. We are grateful to all of the legislators who supported this initiative, as well as Speaker Silver, Senate Co-Leader Klein, Assemblyman O'Donnell, Democratic Leader Stewart-Cousins, and Republican Leader Skelos for moving this important priority forward."
