SLOW DOWN! New lowered city speed limit goes into effect today

Starting today, police will begin enforcing the new 25 mph citywide speed limit.

Legislation passed last month lowered the default city speed limit from 30 mph to 25 mph. For the past 25 days, the Department of Transportation, politicians, the NYPD and others have done what they could to get the word out about the new road rules.

Today, strict enforcement of the new speed limit will begin. Unless otherwise posted, speed limits on city roads will now be 25 mph, so unless you want to be the one putting money into the City’s pockets through the pile of speeding tickets that are sure to be issued in the coming months, make sure you slow down.
