Assuming you mean lower average speed, not lower average speed limit, that is correct. I said it and it is a correct statement. That is not what I am denying I said.
YOU DENY IT.
I do not deny it. You cannot apparently comprehend what people write. That is part of what makes your statements so unreliable.
And you have the nerve to call me old and senile. Are you going to deny saying that also?
Why would I? You clearly are old and senile.
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.
I have never denied making such a statement. You are unable to differentiate between the statement I made and the statement you think I made.
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.
Correct, I deny making such a statement, as I did not make such a statement. (Your statement that I did make such a statement happens to be incorrect, however)
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.
(Preserved for clarity)
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.
Ok, perhaps I'll do so when I have the time.
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.
It very much does not mean that. Observations made in such a situation could not on their own indicate such.
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.
I see no reason to assume such.
Good luck with that argument.
I never made that argument.
I am not wasting my time replying to your other statements.
