Street Talk: What do you think about the 25 mph speed limit that goes into effect Friday?

“Let’s give it a try and see how it goes. Sometimes, people don’t even stop when there’s a stop sign.”

Max Hom

“This is a very good idea. It’s good for children as well as school areas because it’ll be safer, but I’m not sure how much a difference of 5 mph will do.”
Max Hom

Leo Wei

“Yes, it might lower some accidents, but people speed all the time, so I’m not sure how this will help much.”

Frank Morales

“30 mph is too slow to begin with, and 25 mph is too excessive. It’ll be too slow during the morning commute.”
Frank Morales

Claire Leder

“I think it’s good. The new speed limit is going to make everybody more cautious with driving and will reduce accidents.”
Claire Leder

Alvin Billings

“Strongly disagree; 25 mph is too unrealistic, especially with traffic conditions. If they try to enforce that strictly, the cost will be snowed under. What are they going to do? Put an officer at every corner?”
Alvin Billings

Cedric Herbin

“It’s not really going to make a difference. There’ll be more traffic and more road rage.”
Cedric Herbin

Lynus Ora

“The speed limit should really stay the same or be 35 mph. I normally drive around 30. Yes, the new speed limit will prevent some accidents, but there’ll be more traffic.”
Lynus Ora
