Is 20 (mph) Plenty for Park Slope?

The Park Slope Civic Council is holding an important  community meeting this weekend that we thought you might be interested in:

Neighborhood Slow Zones and Safer Local Streets

Is 20 (mph) Plenty for Park Slope?

The city's Department of Transportation is looking at locations in all five boroughs to install neighborhood slow zones, a community-based program that reduces speed limits from 30 mph to 20 mph within a select area and adds safety measures in order to change driver behavior. The department is currently accepting applications from neighborhood groups and individuals for these zones.

Is Park Slope the right place for a neighborhood slow zone? You can have a voice in where, how, and if these zones should be installed in and around our community. Take part in this important and informative discussion with elected officials and neighborhood leaders, sponsored by the Park Slope Civic Council.

  1. My belief is that it's plenty reduced for neighborhood awareness and safety.
