New push to reduce speed limits in residential neighborhoods across Nashville

So Harrison decided to do something about it. She created a website, petition and asked for traffic studies. After years of work, a change has been made.

“They lowered the speed limit from 30 to 25, and actually put in another sign,” Harrison said.

Although a step in the right direction, Harrison and her neighbors say they don’t feel safer just yet.

“Here’s the problem if no cops are here, nobody’s going to get a ticket, nobody’s going to slow down,” Mende Pattee said. “Unless there’s going to be more police action I don’t see how it’s going to help.”

Something they think Metro Council should consider when they discuss a proposed bill  on Tuesday, asking Public Works to look into reducing speed limits on neighborhood streets to try and curb speeding issues.
