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

You are speaking about when lights are synched which is a minority of the roadways. But since virtually no one is making a trip on only roads where the signals are in sync, his average speed will still be lowered with a lower speed limit, though not as much as when none of the roads are in sync.

Virtually nobody??? Why in the world would you assume that?

I could take the other position that traveling at 25 mph could cause you to just miss a green signal that you would have made going at 30 mph. That would certainly be a more common scenario.
Actually, when the signals are timed for 25 MPH, that is a LESS common scenario. It only happens when entering or exiting the synchronized segment.
