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

The 85 percentile rule applies to highways, not the city speed limit.

Here's a link to chapter 2 of the NYS Highway Design Manual. You will note that the 85-percentile very much applies and that a "non-standard speed is not to be used".

Most of the accidents are caused by those who are really speeding line at 50 or 60 mph.

The NYPD collision reports are available on the web. It's available in a format that can be imported into a database and analyzed. It is updated daily.

The database shows: 300256 collisions for which "Unsafe Speeding" was mentioned in 1179 crashes for 0.39% of the crashes.
