Re: Pedestrians aren't the only ones who matter.

My last comment was not addressed to you.

The 85 percentile rule applies to highways, not the city speed limit. When traffic permits, very few abide by the 25 mph speed limit because most of the time (in good weather) it is ridiculous. Just go to Queens Blvd where the speed limit click us and you will see virtually every car going above 25 mph. In fact they are doing the same speed as when it were 30 and previously 35 mph. That is because most drivers believe in driving at a safe speed. Most of the accidents are caused by those who are really speeding line at 50 or 60 mph. Those nuts still will speed if the limit is 25, 30, 35 or even 15 mph.

How do you redesign cars to name it safer for the pedestrian? Place a maximum speed on the vehicle of 25 mph?
