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

Not all people speed, then wait at each light resulting in them making the same average speed. They are the exceptions not the rule.

And that scenario only applies to synchronized roads anyway and the vast majority of streets do not have their signals synchronized. BUT EVERY STREET IS SUBJECT TO A LOWER SPEED LIMIT. 30 was lowered to 25. 35 was lowered to 30. And 45 was lowered 35.

And reducing the average speed has many negative outcomes. All trip length times are lengthened and that includes those in buses. Non-revenue bus trip times are also lengthened. That costs the MTA more money worsening their deficit. Truck travel times are increased increasing costs which are then passed to the consumer.
