A pedestrian hit at 35 mph is three times more likely to die as someone hit at 25 mph
The City of Minneapolis changed its speed limits this spring to 20 mph on local residential streets and 25 mph on larger city-owned arterial streets as part of a key strategy to support safety. Over 1000 speed limit signs across the city are being changed in 2020. Learn from Vision Zero Program Coordinator Ethan Fawley on how this fits in with the long term vision of the City of Minneapolis through the Transportation Action Plan. Come away with an understanding of how this will improve commuting options and safety for the thousands of downtown workers who traverse our roads on a daily basis.
Ethan Fawley is the City of Minneapolis Vision Zero Program Coordinator, working to eliminate traffic deaths and severe injuries on streets in the city. He also is the Design topic lead on the City’s Transportation Action Plan.
