In yesterday’s Globe, I read that Denise Provost has sponsored a bill to reduce urban speed limits by 5 mph in the state. Here’s the article:
In a collision with a pedestrian, a 5 mph reduction in speed makes a huge difference in the probability of injury. There’s a chart that illustrates this here:
This bill seems like a step forward in making our state safer for all road users and less fossil fuel dependent.
I was hoping to hear some of your thoughts on this bill. Will you support it? Is it likely to pass? What is its current status?
Thank you for hard work!
