Learn More about Traveling at 20 mph in Park Slope

On Saturday, Jan. 21, the Civic Council held a community to a meeting to discuss neighborhood slow zones, a community-based program from the city’s Department of Transportation that reduces the speed limit to 20 mph (down from 30 mph, the citywide speed limit) within a select area and adds safety measures to change driver behavior and help improve safety. Nearly 100 people turned out at Congregation Beth Elohim for an informative discussion on what turned out to be a very snowy morning.

We’ve posted some key documents from that meeting, including the responses to the survey taken of the attendees and the presentation on an existing New York City slow zone, on our website, along with many important links. Visit www.parkslopeciviccouncil.org/slow-zones.
