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

I never said that lower speed limits don't lower average speed, and I never based it on the premise that most signals are fully synchronized, nor does it have any relevance to what I actually stated.

You know what? I am through with this nonsense. Now you can talk to yourself. I will not go around in circles as you make points then deny you made them. What do you think precipitated this entire discussion?

It was you stating that lowering the speed limit does not mean a lower average speed limit. YOU DENY IT. And you have the nerve to call me old and senile. Are you going to deny saying that also? Apparently you are the one with a memory problem or else you are just lying. Go ahead ask me for proof. Well here it is. YOU SAID IT.


Now try to weasel out of it.

And when I asked you why, you responded with a comment that since signals on most streets are synchronized, lowering the speed limit does not affect average speed. Now you deny making that comment as well.

And as far as "proof"...

Me: Queens Blvd had no pedestrian fatalities last year not because the speed limit was lowered but because fencing was installed in the center median preventing midblock crossings by jaywalkers and clearer marked crosswalks.



Me: Just stand on Queens Blvd near 51st Avenue where I believe there is a digital overhead showing the speed you are traveling, you will see that whenever the street is not clogged with traffic, virtually everyone is exceeding the 25 mph speed limit. That means that since virtually no one is abiding by the lower speed limit, it couldn't possibly be a factor in reducing accidents and fatalities. That is jus common sense which you have none of. Of course you could argue that along the rest of the street where there are no digital displays most are abiding the speed limit there. Good luck with that argument.

I am not wasting my time replying to your other statements.
