Activists Change Speed Limit Signs in Park Slope to 20 Miles Per Hour


    Street safety activist group Right of Way installed 20-mile-an-hour speed limit signs over official city signs on Prospect Park West in Park Slope Sunday night to bring attention to traffic safety as the City Council prepares to vote on speed limits today, numerous outlets reported.

    Several children have been killed in recent weeks by drivers who were going the posted speed limit or who jumped the curb. The group said reducing the speed limit from 30 to 20 would significantly reduce pedestrian deaths. The city removed the signs immediately, The Daily News reported.
