October 7, 2014"There is no question this will save lives. Speeding on our streets is taking the lives of our children and our neighbors. Lowering the citywide speed limit is a powerful new tool we can combine with education, enforcement and better-designed streets. As both Mayor and as a parent, I am deeply grateful to the City Council for its advocacy in Albany to secure this change, and today's action to cement it into law. Speaker Mark-Viverito, Transportation Chair Rodriguez and Council Member Greenfield have been powerful allies as we work to make Vision Zero a reality. We thank them, Governor Cuomo and the State Legislature for uniting behind this vital safety initiative."
