Reduces the Speed Limit to Twenty-Five Miles per Hour in Cities, Villages and TownsFull Bill Text
New York Assembly Bill 1246 was introduced into the Assembly Transportation Committee on January 7, 2021. If passed, this measure would lower speed limits in villages, towns and cities from 30 mph to 25 mph.
The NMA opposes this measure since arbitrarily lowering speed limits has little impact on traffic safety and artificially increases violation rates leading to more ticket revenue. Learn more about how speed limits should be set here.
