Albany finally wakes up

I’m angrier than a guy who sees people speeding on a daily basis without consequence.  I’m enraged because Albany lawmakers didn’t do what they did on Monday a long time ago.  On Monday, the speed limit for most of the city was decreased from 30 miles per hour to 25.

It only took two years for this decrease to pass into law.  The lower speed limits might decrease the severity of injuries that an innocent people sustains at the hands of reckless drivers who don’t care about speed limits.  Apparently, drivers tend to adhere to lower speed limits, but of course others will only speed even more.
There are numerous places throughout the city where the 25 mph speed limit will not apply, and those will be the areas with the most accidents and where more pedestrians will meet their demise at the hands of drivers.

I guess it’s better late than never when it comes to speed limit decreases, but this should have been done a long time ago.

And now we come to the cost: how much will it cost us to make new speed limit signs?  It should come as no surprise that no one will say.  But baby steps, Albany.  Baby steps.
