The Brooklyn Heights Association, having advocated successfully for the designation of the Heights as a “slow zone” with a 20 mph speed limit and speed bumps on streets, has now joined with Families for Safe Streets, Transportation Alternatives, and other civic and advocacy groups, to urge a city-wide default speed limit of 20 mph (higher limits could be posted for “larger Streets and arterial roads”). Given Albany’s strangle-hold on the City, this can’t be done by local government, but requires action by the State Legislature. Accordingly, the BHA is asking concerned residents to join in a “lobby day” in Albany to urge the Legislature to take action. Round trip bus tickets for the event, costing $10, can be reserved here.
