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

Everything is a trade-off between reducing travel time on the one hand and reducing traffic deaths on the other hand. Deaths would be really low if vehicles were restricted to no more than 10 mph.

But that risk isn't appreciably lower at 10 mph than it is at 25 mph, so 25 mph is a good compromise. Since children and the elderly are more vulnerable, 20 mph is more appropriate than 25 mph where pedestrians are more likely to be children or elderly.
