Mayor Durkan Proposes Speed Limit Reduction

Mayor Jenny Durkan recently announced her plan to improve pedestrian and cyclist safety by reducing speed limits on city streets to 25 miles per hour. According to Mayor Durkin, a pedestrian is twice as likely to be killed if hit by a car traveling 30 mph versus a car traveling 25 mph.

According to the Seattle Department of Transportation, a total of 178 people has been seriously injured in crashes, with 25 of those incidents resulting in deaths. SDOT has reported a 35 percent decrease in crashes in areas that already have 25 miles per hour speed limits. In order to combat the rise of pedestrian accidents and deaths, the mayor will allocate an additional $200 million towards the 2020 budget in added safety measures.
