TRAFFIC: Lowering the Speed Limit

Question/Comment: Can the speed limit be lowered on Somerville streets? Cars speed or even when they are going 30 miles per hour, that’s too fast for dense areas.

City Update 1/1/2008: Speed limits are governed by state law. However, the City is currently lobbying the state legislature to lower the default citywide limit from 30 to 25 mph.
