Boston considering 20 mph speed limit

For the second time in two years, Boston could be looking at new, lower speed limits.

Today, the City Council will discuss again lowering the speed limit for drivers, this time from 25 mph to 20 mph, in a hearing with city officials and pedestrian and traffic organizations. Speed limits were reduced in January 2017 to 25 mph citywide — unless otherwise posted — from the previous speed limit of 30 mph.
