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

Yes and that is exactly what DeBlasio promised that the DEFAULT speed limit would be reduced to 25 mph, and that any road warranting a higher speed limit would have it retained. But slowly within the following three years the speed limit on virtually every single roadway was reduced to 25 mph except for a few parkway and highway service roads and roads in what amounts to suburban areas.

In Brooklyn for example every north south roadway is now 25 mph and there is not a single highway alternative. It isn't so bad in Queens because in many cases you can use a highway for long distances. In Brooklyn, you have to travel as much as ten miles at a limit of 25 mph or average speed of below 10 mph.
