I would like to applaud Mayor Bill de Blasio for creating a task force in an attempt to make our streets safer.
Last year, an 86-year-old neighbor of mine was killed with his dog by a driver who was speeding to catch the green light. A slower speed limit in residential areas would greatly reduce injuries and death.
We also have a school on the same block. As such, I would also favor speed cameras near schools and those areas where traffic accidents occurred.
