NY Lawmaker Proposes Bill (A8600) to lower Speed Limits to 25 mph in cities, villages, and towns

A member of the state Assembly wants to see the speed limit lowered to 25 miles an hour in cities, villages and towns.

Assemblywoman Amy Paulin, D-Scarsdale, recently proposed A.8600 to lower the allowed maximum speed to 25 miles an hour. Currently, the maximum speed limit throughout a city, town or village cannot be set lower than 30 miles an hour, though the lower speed limit inside cities is more common in Pennsylvania.

The legislation also stipulates that electronic personal assistive mobility devices would only be allowed on roads with a posted speed limit of 25 miles an hour or less.
