Increased Speed Limits On 100+ Miles Of Los Angeles Streets Approved By City Council

The Los Angeles City Council unanimously agreed Tuesday to raise speed limits on more than 100 miles of city streets, with officials saying the changes are the only way to resolve a years-long problem that has prevented police officers from ticketing speeding drivers.

Pending approval by Mayor Eric Garcetti, speed limits would rise on some of the Southland’s most familiar thoroughfares, including San Vicente Boulevard through Mid-Wilshire and stretches of Reseda, Victory and Chandler boulevards in the San Fernando Valley.
