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

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.

The 85th percentile rule absolutely applies to city streets (in fact, moreso than limited access highways which are usually governed by statutory speed limits). I agree completely that simply lowering a posted speed limit does nothing to slow traffic. The road has to be redesigned for the lower speed limit; adding bike lanes is one way of doing that.
