40 km speed limits

On Council May 10 agenda there is a report recommending that the default speed on all local and collector roads be 40 km whereas it is currently often 50 km.   As reviewed this was a tactic recommended in the Traffic Calming Strategy.  The report says that this lower limit will reduce frequency and severity of collisions; I believe it will also improve the feeling of safey for those walking on the road.  To see both the report and the list of roads for which speed will be reduced to the meeting agenda and scroll down.
